980 students and 95 staff members are currently quarantined or isolated, according to the district's COVID-19 data tracker.

Currently, every student who spent more than 15 minutes within six feet of a person with Coronavirus is considered a close contact and must be quarantined.

Metro Schools policy states that students who are within 3-6 feet of an infected student are not considered close contacts and do not need to be quarantined if both students are wearing masks.

Furthermore, if no symptoms are present, students or staff who are completely vaccinated do not need to quarantine.
