Ohio's Schools to Discontinue COVID-19 Contact Tracing

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) announced on January 26 that “due to the quick spread of the Omicron variant and its rapid clinical course have made universal contact tracing, case investigation, and exposure notification impractical when combined with newly reduced timelines for quarantine and isolation.”

Until notified otherwise by ODH or Franklin County Public Health (FCPH), Groveport Madison Schools will discontinue contact tracing and COVID-19 notifications to families and District staff. However, the District will maintain its COVID-19 dashboard, which is updated daily, as a means of keeping our stakeholders informed of the number of active COVID-19 cases in the school district.
