Owasso Public Schools currently has 29 positive COVID-19 cases in isolation, as of Sunday, Nov. 22 — down one from last week — according to the district’s website.

Eleven school staff, 10 elementary students and eight secondary students have been identified as positive carriers of the coronavirus, OPS’ web portal shows. As such, those individuals, and 735 people in close contact with them, have been quarantined.

OPS is following CDC and Tulsa County Health Department recommendations by requiring all students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 to remain in isolation for at least 10 days beginning on the date of the onset of symptoms.

Students and staff who test positive must meet all conditions of the Return to School criteria before returning to OPS buildings:

• 24 hours fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication

• 10 days have passed since the onset of symptoms

• Improved respiratory symptoms

Those who have been identified as being in close contact with someone who has tested positive, whether that exposure occurred on or off of district property, must be quarantined for 14 days per the CDC and THD.
