Sublette County School District No. 1 has reported that a staff member at Pinedale
Middle School has tested positive for COVID-19.

Public health officials will issue letters to parents and guardians that students may
have possibly been exposed to COVID-19. That letter will outline the next steps
and contact information, but generally includes the following guidance:

What to do if your child was possibly exposed to COVID-19?
• Monitor your child for symptoms for at least 14 days after the last day he or she
was possibly exposed to COVID-19. According to the Wyoming Department of
Health and County Health/Public Health Nursing, the last day your child may have
been exposed was ____.
• It is especially important during these 14 days that your child physically distance
themselves from others and wear face coverings when physical distancing isn’t

What to do if your child gets sick?
• If your child develops symptoms, even if the symptoms are mild, he or she may
have COVID- 19. Your child should stay home except to get medical care. Do not
send your child to school, and avoid public spaces, public activities, and group
• Call your child’s healthcare provider to discuss your child’s symptoms and
whether he or she needs to be tested. When contacting your healthcare provider,
you should mention that you received this letter.
• Household members should also stay at home as much as possible. If your child
gets sick, when can he or she resume normal activities?

If your child is sick, he or she should stay home until:
• Fever has been gone for 24 hours without using a fever-reducing medication,
• Symptoms have improved, AND
• At least ten days have passed since symptoms first began.

We will provide further updates as information becomes available.
