Please make sure you screen your students every day for possible COVID-19 symptoms.  Please keep your students home if:


·      your student is showing symptoms of COVID-19.

·      has recently been exposed to or had close contact with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19.

·      is waiting on test results.


In evaluating whether an individual has symptoms consistent with COVID-19, consider the following question: Have they recently begun experiencing any of the following in a way that is not normal for them?



·      Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

·      Loss of taste or smell

·      Cough

·      Difficulty breathing

·      Shortness of breath

·      Fatigue

·      Headache

·      Chills

·      Sore throat

·      Congestion or runny nose

·      Shaking or exaggerated shivering

·      Significant muscle pain or ache

·      Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea



Close contact: “close contact” with and individual who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19. The definition of close contact is evolving with our understanding of COVID-19, and individual scenarios should be determined by an appropriate public health agency.  In general, close contact is defined as: a. being directly exposed to infectious secretions (e.g., being coughed on); or b. being within 6 feet for a cumulative duration of 15 minutes; however, additional factors like case/contact masking (i.e., both the infectious individual and the potential close contact have been consistently and properly masked), ventilation, presence of dividers, and case symptomology may affect this determination.
