COVID-19 Information

As a reminder, for any COVID-related questions or reporting, please use the healthreporting@smapdx.org email. The COVID-19 dashboard on the website is updated on Monday afternoons.

On January 7, Multnomah County updated its quarantine protocols (direct link here) and, the ODE communicated revised quarantine guidelines and a revised definition of what an “Up to Date” status on COVID-19 vaccination requires: 

Vaccination Status:
Within the K-12 setting, those who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination include: 

·     Individuals 18 or older who have received all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people. 

·     Youth 5-17 years who have completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines. 

Quarantine Guidelines:

·     Individuals can end isolation after five full days since symptom onset if they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and their other symptoms have improved. (This means that if you tested positive for COVID-19 have completed a five-day quarantine, have no continued symptoms, and have been fever-free for 48 hours without fever-reducing medicine, you may return to school).   

·     Students, teachers, and staff who have presumed or confirmed COVID-19 or are showing symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate regardless of vaccination status.

Please reach out to healthreporting@smapdx.org if you have any questions.

COVID-19 Dashboard

The Oregon Department of Education and Oregon Health Authority require schools to report and notify their local Public Health Department as well as parents/guardians of all cases of COVID-19 among students, faculty, staff and coaches.  This reporting informs our community about potential exposures to COVID-19 and provides transparent and comprehensive information about the spread of the virus. 

In an effort to streamline this information, St. Mary's will update a public COVID-19 Dashboard on a weekly basis that indicates the number of active and cumulative confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in our community.

St. Mary's will also continue to directly contact any individuals who may have been in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 in order to ensure any required testing/quarantine protocols are followed.
