K-12 Personnel Resources:
In-Person Case Guidance, Forms & Screening Tools

ODH announced effective March 10, 2022, K-12 schools will no longer be required to report positive COVID-19 cases to their local health departments, unless the school tests a student for COVID-19 and the result is positive. Those cases should be reported to idrsinfo.org.

For technical assistance, questions and concerns on cases investigation, exposure notification and contact tracing, please send an email to schools@franklincountyohio.gov. Emails will be monitored Monday thru Friday, 8am to 5pm with holidays being an exception.

This guidance is only for individuals who are returning to the school setting or school-related activities following an exposure to COVID-19. Those returning to outside of the school or non-school-related activities should see our What to do if you have been exposed.

* This guidance’s intended audience is Kindergarten-12th grade public and private schools. It is not meant for preschools, before/after care programs or daycares, even if licensed by the Ohio Department of Education. These programs should follow the What To Do If You’ve Been Exposed guidance. Additional resources can be found on our Restart Ohio and Guidance page.
