Screening for Symptoms

Who should complete the daily screening tools? The screening tools should be completed daily by any school-based staff and all students who are attending school in-person (or the parent/guardian for each child).

Who does the screening criteria apply to? The screening tools are designed to determine whether staff and students should attend school each day. Individuals who do not work at or attend the school setting are encouraged to follow their individual workplace screening guidelines for COVID-19.

Why should the screening tools be completed daily? Screening staff and students for COVID-19 symptoms and potential exposures every day before attending school is vital to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

*Note. These tools are currently being updated to reflect new information. Please check back soon for the updated screening tools.
