DHEC has altered its definition of a close contact as it relates to students in a school setting. Effective immediately, a masked student is NO LONGER required to quarantine if he/she is within 3-6 feet of a COVID positive student for 15+ minutes, regardless of whether the positive student is masked. Prior to this, both students had to be masked for the close contact to be exempted from quarantining. If the COVID positive student is masked but the close contact is not, a quarantine is still required. Quarantine requirements related to exposure involving a COVID-positive adult remain unchanged.
