The Minnesota Department of Education has provided updated guidance on quarantine and isolation: "Throughout the pandemic, the Recommended COVID-19 Decision Tree for Schools, Youth Programs and Child Care Programs from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has helped determine when to direct children, families and staff to isolate and/or quarantine. This tool has been under review and was retired this week.
The decision tree has been replaced with a Guide for Isolation and a Guide for Quarantine for schools, child care and youth programming. Each guide provides best practice recommendations for isolation and quarantine in alignment with CDC guidance. You can also visit If You Are Sick or Test Positive and Close Contacts and Quarantine for more information on isolation and quarantine."
