The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ended on May 11, 2023. This means the pandemic is no longer considered a global emergency or healthcare crisis.
The School City of East Chicago would like to continue to ensure that all staff and students remain healthy and safe:
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, we recommend that you seek the advice of your healthcare provider before your return to work. The current CDC guidelines recommend that you isolate for 5 days from the start of symptoms or the date of your positive COVID-19 test. Return to work or school when symptoms resolve for 24 hours.
  • CDC recommends that you wear a mask for 5 consecutive days when you return to work and in close contact with other staff and students.
