All students must follow requirements from the Pinal County Department of Public Health, which state that students who are exposed to COVID-19 must quarantine for ten (10) days from the date of exposure. Exposure is being within six feet for fifteen (15) cumulative minutes or more. A student who has proof of vaccination will not be required to quarantine if they are exposed to someone with COVID-19 on campus, as per Pinal County Department of Public Health.
