What will be the school’s role in COVID-19 contact tracing?
Schools should work collaboratively with public health by:

1. Being proactive in contacting NH DHHS when a person is confirmed with COVID-19 in your school community.

2. Assist in identifying those who had close contacts (within 6 feet for 10 minutes or more) with the person confirmed with COVID-19. This might include sharing seating charts, attendance records and bus rosters.

3. Assist in providing contact information for those identified as close contacts (including name, date of birth and phone number of parents/guardians).

4. Communicate with your school community. NH DHHS will assist you in the development of these communications.

This is the link to the Department of Health’s FAQ document – that is very comprehensive.
