A note from Bulloch County Schools:
This is a reminder that our school district’s quarantine and isolation requirements for illness are still in effect. Use the attached guide, available in English and Spanish, to help monitor your health and alert you to when isolation and quarantines are necessary to help slow the spread of illness in our schools and offices. The change in the school district’s operations on November 8, from High Spread to No/Moderately High Spread protocols, does not alter our quarantine and isolation requirements for illness mitigation.
Please remember to monitor your health as well as those in your household before going to work or school. Fall and winter bring school and holiday breaks and special gatherings plus cold and influenza season, so it’s a key time to remember Bulloch County Schools’ steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious illnesses. Cases of illness tend to be higher just after a school break or holiday, so please continue to refer to the attached guide. Our schools also sent this guide home with every student in October, and it is available online.
We encourage families who are able to get the COVID-19 and flu vaccine. They are available at the Health Department, local pharmacies, primary care physicians, and through local pop-up clinics. The Bulloch County Health Department is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
COVID-19 and Flu Vaccine Clinics for Employees
Since March 2021, the school district has organized nine COVID-19 vaccine clinics for its employees and substitutes and their household dependents. Bulloch County Schools also hosted its annual series of 16 flu vaccine clinics for our employees and their families October 6-15.
Flu Vaccine Clinics for Students
The school district hosted flu vaccine clinics at each of its schools October 27 through November 5, for students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12.
