Quarantine Guidance for Milwaukee School and Child Care Participants

Quarantine is strict physical separation of individuals who have been exposed to a communicable disease, to determine whether they develop symptoms or test positive for the disease. Quarantine helps stop the spread of the disease to others in the community.

The City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) acknowledges the decision to open schools is an emotional one for all parties involved. Children and their safety and development are our priority during this pandemic. We will be doing weekly school safety plan updates on Fridays in order to keep the community apprised of the school plans submitted and approved. As of October 16, MHD has received 60 total complete plans. In order for a plan to be complete, it must include a MHD K-12 Safety Assessment Checklist. 

MHD is continuing to review COVID-19 safety plans for schools that are located in the City of Milwaukee and desire to have options aside from virtual. Plans are reviewed in the order that they are received and prioritized by the open date. Schools will receive an approval letter from the Commissioner of Health.
