CDC Updates COVID-19 Recommendations

April 9, 2024

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) have released updated recommendations regarding COVID-19. These new recommendations no longer require individuals to isolate for five days and now align with recommendations for flu, RSV and other common respiratory viruses. Bastrop ISD will follow the updated guidance, which states that individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or a respiratory virus, stay home and away from others until they are 24 hours fever-free without fever-reducing medication with symptoms improving.


If you have questions, please contact Bastrop ISD Health Services at or 512-772-7249.
