Isolation vs. Quarantine
Isolation is when a person tests positive for the virus. They are required to isolate at home for a period of time to contain the spread of the virus.
Quarantine is when a person has been exposed to someone that has tested positive. They are quarantined at home for a period of time to ensure that they do not become positive and infect others.

GCS updates the district's dashboard each day, whether students are in person or on NTI. This is both to inform our community and to meet state reporting requirements. Parents and guardians should continue to report positive cases to their child's school. Accurate data is essential to the safety of students and staff in our buildings. Reporting is also a state requirement for both families and schools.
