Loudoun Co. Lowers COVID Quarantine Period for Unvaccinated Students

Loudoun County Public Schools has changed its quarantine policy for unvaccinated students exposed to the coronavirus, reducing the mandated period from 14 days to 10 days.

Superintendent Scott Ziegler said the change, made with guidance from the state health department, was spurred by “the extremely low number of student cases,” WTOP reported.

“For a lot of children and their families, quarantining for 14 days is a hardship, economically and in regard to their mental health,” Ziegler said in a statement. “This is especially true in grades kindergarten through six, where students are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.”

So far this school year, 59 students in the Northern Virginia school district have gotten the coronavirus and 259 close contacts of the infected pupils have had to quarantine, WTOP reported.
