FWISD Requests Employees Testing Positive, Exposed to COVID-19 Report Case to District
District employees must report whether they’ve tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with a person with a confirmed virus case, per the Fort Worth ISD COVID-19 screening protocols.
Employees must contact their campus supervisor or campus principal, and it’s requested that the supervisor or principal complete an electronic authorization form that allows FWISD professionals to share the information with public health agencies or other District officials as warranted. To the extent legally possible, the District will protect personal identifiable information from public disclosure at all times.
“The Fort Worth Independent School District (‘FWISD’) seeks to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all its employees and students. The information … is being requested by FWISD to properly assess the level of risk and potential exposure to yourself and others,” according to the authorization form.
In the event an employee has a COVID-19 case conformed by testing or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus, they must follow all isolation and quarantine instructions from FWISD in accordance with local health authorities.
