- If a student, family member, or HOPE staff shows any symptoms they should follow the CDC guidelines for quarantine and testing. They should also remain away from HOPE classes or events until they have tested negative or the symptoms have cleared as outlined by the CDC. A parent or guardian should notify HOPE immediately. HOPE will not make any notifications of presumed illness.

Person(s) exposed to a presumed or confirmed positive person that receive a negative test result may return to campus after a 7 day quarantine from known day of exposure. Person(s) exposed must not test until day 5 after known exposure in order to receive an accurate Covid test result. HOPE will not be making public or group announcements in these circumstances.
Should an active case be discovered while the participant is at HOPE Prep or at a HOPE event:
- If a student, the parents must be contacted, and the child immediately transported by the parents to home or care facility. The child should either wait outside the building (accompanied by an assigned adult) or wait inside a designated quarantine space.
- If an adult, the individual must immediately leave the facility and return home or to a care facility.
- The areas used by the infected individual will be made unavailable for 24 hours (when possible) and then cleaned and disinfected before any reuse is permitted.
