CMCS Positive Case Protocol

Parents and staff will need to report a confirmed positive case or close contact with a positive case by emailing or texting Ms. Devon at 813-444-6160. Please note that if you are reporting a positive case, you must upload a copy of the positive test results.

The Department of Health will determine which individuals need to quarantine due to close contact with a positive case. Close contact is defined as within three feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more.

The Department of Health will review each case and make a recommendation. Individuals who need to quarantine should receive a Department of Health letter provided by CMCS, as well as an automated call, text and/or email. 

CMCS will not conduct a school-wide notification of a positive case. Reports of COVID-19 will be available here on our dashboard. Direct notification will be limited to students or staff who are required to quaratine.


Consider a medical evaluation for:

  • Fever that last 3 or more days
  • Drainage from the ear
  • Cough that continues for several days
  • Repeated episodes of diarrhea or vomiting
  • Rash
  • Itchy eyes with clear or cloudy drainage
  • Sore throat, with or without fever
  • “Cold” symptoms that last more than one week​

*A child who has fever with a temperature greater than 100 degrees (orally), has been vomiting, or has diarrhea should stay home for 24 hours AFTER the symptoms are gone.

*Children of all ages need 8-10 hours of sleep at night and good nutrition including adequate fluids (milk, juice, water).
