COVID-19 Healthy at Mercy
The Kentucky Department of Public Health (KDPH) released modifications to quarantine guidelines on January 10, 2022 that have been supported by the local health department and the Archdiocese of Louisville. Schools with a universal mask policy in place (like Mercy) are now permitted to utilize the following guidance on isolation and quarantines:
Mercy considers an individual to be fully vaccinated 14+ days after the final injection of an mRNA vaccine or 14+ days past the single injection of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Policy for Extended Absence Due to Ordered Quarantine
Report any NEW quarantine orders to the school office before 9:00 a.m. on your student's first quarantine school day. Messages may be left on the school answering machine prior to 7:30 a.m.
If your student is quarantined due to a COVID exposure, she is expected to follow these guidelines with respect to coursework.
Upon return to school, your student will meet with her academic counselors to establish a timeline for submitting any missing assignments.
