Health & Safety

Positive Covid Cases

Individuals who test positive for COVID are required to quarantine for 10 days. We will also do contract tracing to identify additional people who need to quarantine. We will follow AISD protocol and report all positive cases to our Ortega Community via School Messenger.

Sick Individuals

If you or your child are feeling sick, regardless of whether you’re vaccinated or not, please stay home and contact your physician and campus as soon as possible. Anyone who is sick will need to isolate for 10 days. Those who show symptoms can return early if they receive a doctor’s note stating they do not have COVID-19 or receive a negative result from a PCR test. Rapid antigen testing will still be available in campus health rooms at the start of the school year. Call our health office to get information on testing, 512-414-3145.


Anyone who is unvaccinated and has had direct contact with someone that has tested positive will be required to quarantine for 10-14 days. Vaccinated individuals who are symptom-free will not need to quarantine if they come in close contact with someone who tests positive.
