To protect the health of our School Community and per the Emergency Order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on October 6, 2020, Detroit Catholic Central High School will provide Public Notice to our School Community regarding School Associated Cases of COVID-19. Within 24 hours of being notified of a School Associated Case by our local county health departments, this dashboard will be updated to include new and cumulative COVID-19 case counts. Individuals identified as Close Contacts of School Associated Cases will be notified separately and directly by the Oakland County Health Department.

  • Students that have been deemed as a close contact to a positive case MAY return after a 10-day quarantine period. If someone can quarantine for 14 days, that is still the “gold standard”.
  • Students that have been deemed as a close contact to a positive case CANNOT test negative and return to school after a 7-day quarantine period.
  • Employees that have been deemed as a close contact to a positive case CANNOT return until after a 14-day quarantine period.
  • Employees that have been deemed as a close contact to a positive case CANNOT test negative and return to work after a 7-day quarantine period.

  • Update: 9/2/20  Catholic Central will continue to utilize a test-based return strategy due to the ability to test onsite and for the safety and well-being of our community.   A symptom-based return strategy will be utilized only after a second positive.  
  • Update 9/2/20  COVID-19 symptomatic students sent home from school must be kept home until they have tested negative for COVID.  If a second test reports positive, the student will be required to isolate for an additional six days prior to return.
