The Alpine School District has told teachers and staff they have the option of keeping quiet about any potential exposure to COVID-19, so long as they don’t show any symptoms because the Health Department cannot enforce quarantine or mask-wearing. District officials say those guidelines are a draft version that was sent out mistakenly.

The draft guidelines were sent to employees via email on Wednesday evening. It laid out several possible courses of action in the case of a COVID-19 exposure. They include quarantining at home for 10 days or seven days with a negative test and no symptoms. Employees can also wear a mask in schools for 10 days or seven days with a negative test and no symptoms.
