01/06/2021 - 4:00 p.m.: Killeen ISD Parents, The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) have updated their Close Contact Stay-At-Home guidance to allow for two shorter isolation options. Effective today, (January 5, 2021) Killeen ISD will change the 14-day KISD Close Contact isolation period to 10 calendar days to align with the CDC and TEA. KISD students who have been deemed in Close Contact and have NOT experienced any COVID-19 symptoms can return to school:
- On Day 10 without getting tested for COVID-19
- On Day 7 with a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) COVID-19 lab-confirmed test* taken no sooner than 5 days after being exposed to COVID-19 (within 48 hours before returning to campus)
-Employees and Students must pass the daily self-screener to return to work.
*A KISD Rapid Screener does not qualify as a PCR lab-confirmed COVID-19 test.
We continue to monitor COVID-19 cases across the district and consult with the Bell County Health District as needed. The KISD Public Health Guide has been updated to align with the new changes and a new COVID Student Flowchart linked below.
