TST BOCES’ Contact Tracing Plan

  • TST BOCES has contracted with Cayuga Health on a screening application that will result in real time intervention through tele-medicine if an employee or student presents symptoms or cannot make affirmation of COVID-19 free contact through health screening questions. The process established through Cayuga Health could result in an immediate referral to the Tompkins County Department of Health for testing and contact tracing.  Universal temperature screening will be deployed in the opening weeks of the new school year with temperature checks continuing daily for visitors and faculty/staff/students that need to complete health screening at school for the foreseeable future.
