If you are a parent or guardian concerned about your child being sent home from school, please know that it is mandated that schools enforce state and federal isolation and quarantine recommendations. This is explained in DHS 145.07 (1): “Any teacher, principal, director or nurse serving a school or day care center may send home, for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment, any pupil suspected of having a communicable disease or of having any other disease or condition having the potential to affect the health of other students and staff.” COVID-19 is considered a communicable disease.
If you are a parent or guardian concerned about COVID-19 guidelines varying from school to school, please know that Brown County Public Health (BCPH) has provided schools with recommendations that are in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). However, these are recommendations, not requirements. School districts make their own internal policy decisions. If there are concerns regarding a school's policy, please reach out to the district administrator or school board directly.
If you have concerns about a potential COVID-19 exposure in a business or facility, please know that BCPH continues to monitor the local situation in Brown County. We provide guidance and recommendations that align with our state and federal partners. Each business or facility should develop their own COVID-19 response plan and policy. If you are concerned for your individual health or family’s health due to possible COVID-19 exposure, it is recommended that you contact your provider or call 211 to reach the United Way Helpline to find a provider near you.
If you would like to report a positive COVID-19 case in your business or facility, please call Brown County Public Health at 920-448-6400 or email BC_Health@browncountywi.gov. Wisconsin Department of Health Services adopted CDC’s shortened isolation and quarantine period for the general public. It is recommended that asymptomatic and symptomatic people who test positive isolate for at least 5 days from symptom onset as long as they are fever free. Close contacts must quarantine.
