COVID-19 Reporting Protocols
The Ministry of Health in Morocco has recently published guidelines for schools for managing COVID-19 cases on campus. Given this, the Safety and Security Committee of RAS reviewed previously published protocols from the Ministry of Education, our own RAS protocols and compared them to the recently published protocol from the Ministry of Health.
After review, we have updated the four protocols that we originally shared with the RAS community for reporting COVID-19.
The most important changes to the protocol, which will be effective immediately are:
1. Students and staff with direct contact with COVID-19 are only required to test once to return to campus, with the requirement that the test be performed at least 5 days (120 hours) after last exposure.
2. Students and staff with direct contact with COVID-19 can return to campus after 7 days (originally 14 days) with a negative PCR test taken at least 5 days (120 hours) after last exposure.
3. Household members (siblings, spouses, and children) of those with direct contact are no longer required to test if the household member with direct contact tests negative at least 5 days after last exposure.
4. We have created a dedicated email address firstname.lastname@example.org for reporting COVID-19 related matters.
