§806. Exclusion from school

2. Exclusion.  The department may exclude any infected person from attending or working in a school or day care facility if that infected person poses a public health threat. An individual excluded pursuant to this subsection shall be permitted to return to the school or day care facility after the department, in consultation with the physician responsible for the individual's care, determines that return is permissible and will not pose a threat to the public health. The department shall notify the superintendent or day care facility administrator of that determination.
