New contact tracing protocols - as of Jan. 10

“Franklin County Public Health appreciates the continued partnership with the Dublin City Schools for its extensive efforts following public health guidance and mitigation strategies to prevent COVID-19. FCPH is supportive of the District’s intention to consider a new classroom-based exposure policy requiring all students in a classroom to wear a mask when one student is positive for COVID-19 and applying a similar approach at the grade and building levels. If adopted, FCPH is committed to working with the Dublin City Schools towards effective implementation of the policy as appropriate.”

-Joe Mazzola, Health Commissioner, Franklin County Public Health
