BVSD's response to COVID-19:  We've made it After four years of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public health approach to COVID has changed and BVSD has aligned with National and State recommendations to keep kids safe and healthy.

Updated March 4, 2024

We came through this ~ together

In March 2024 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released updated guidance for COVID-19.  Based on high population immunity, effective vaccines and treatments, the rates of hospitalizations and deaths have dramatically decreased since the height of the Omicron wave which has resulted in COVID becoming more similar to that of other common viral respiratory illnesses.

Beginning on March 4, 2024 BVSD's COVID guidance aligns with the State and National guidance on other viral respiratory illnesses.

If someone tests positive for COVID, Flu, RSV, OR is experiencing any respiratory illness

  • They should stay home until symptoms are improving and for at least 24 hours after fever has resolved without the use of fever-reducing medications

  • When going back to normal activities, take added precautions over the next five days, such as hand and respiratory hygiene, masks, physical distancing, and/or testing when you will be around other people indoors. 

You can find more information on respiratory and other common illnesses, and guidelines for school attendance in CDPHE's How Sick is Too Sick and through your school's health team.
