The Watonga School Board, meeting in regular session Aug. 10, readjusted its return to school plan. The revised plan includes many of the already-agreed upon items, such as self-screening for students and employees for fever or other symptoms of Covid-19. Those who have been diagnosed with the virus may return to school if three days have passed since recovery (no fever), if the patient has improved respiratory symptoms such as cough, and 14 days have passed since diagnosis. If someone has symptoms but does not seek diagnosis, they must meet the first two markers as well as be 14 days since the onset of symptoms.
