COVID-19 Health Order Communication

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Greeley-Evans School District 6 has followed health orders issued through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, as well as taken advice from local health officials including the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment.

On May 31, the Third Amended Public Health Order 20-38 was released. Based on this latest order, the following changes will be made to District 6 COVID-19 protocols beginning Wednesday, June 16:

  • Face coverings will no longer be required for individuals 12 years of age or older who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

  • Students age 11 and under will no longer be required to wear a face covering.

  • Employees and students who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19, but will be asked to monitor themselves for symptoms. Confirmation of having received a COVID-19 vaccine may be required to avoid quarantine.

  • Unvaccinated students and staff will need to quarantine for a minimum of 7 days, if receiving a negative COVID-19 test on day 5, 6, or 7 from the known exposure, returning on Day 8. If not tested, the quarantine will be for a minimum of 10 days.

  • Staff who must quarantine and who have exhausted their paid sick leave will be required to use personal leave for quarantines and isolation.

  • Anyone testing positive for COVID-19 will need to isolate for 10 days, regardless of vaccination status. 

  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated and children ages 11 and under can make a personal choice to wear a facial covering. That choice will continue to be respected and supported by District 6.

  • Social distancing is still encouraged. 

COVID-19 vaccinations are now approved for everyone 12 years of age and older and are widely available in every community.
