COVID-19 Pandemic Conditions of Operation Model for the 2021-2022 school year has been developed and reviewed by the Board of Education. The comprehensive model provided guidelines for a full return. The primary goal for both plans is the safety of our students, staff, and community against the exposure and spread of CODIV-19.
Bethel-Tate Local Schools will also offer a full-time On-Line Virtual Academy for students who are unable to attend school in-person.

Ohio Department of Health Updated Guidance - revised December 31, 2022
The Ohio Department of Health has released a flow chart based on the CDC’s updated guidance following an exposure to someone with COVID-19. Regardless of vaccination status or symptoms, anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 5 days. However, if symptoms are improving, isolation may end on the sixth day following either symptom onset or a positive COVID-19 test if the person consistently wears a mask for the next five days. Detailed quarantine and isolation guidance are available in the flow chart. The Ohio Department of Health has also updated K-12 school quarantine guidance including “mask to stay” and “test to play” timelines accordingly.
