Omaha, Nebraska (AP) — Schools in Nebraska receive conflicting advice from state and federal health authorities on whether students should be quarantined after contact with a COVID-19-positive person.

The state Department of Health and Human Services has informed schools that students who come into contact with an infected person do not need to be quarantined unless they have symptoms of COVID-19.

However, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that students who are not vaccinated and who are in close contact with the infected need to continue to be quarantined.

Each school district will decide which advice to follow after consulting with the local health authorities.
