We can all help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our schools by self-monitoring our symptoms and staying off campus if we are feeling sick or have potentially been exposed to the virus.
It’s important that everyone be able to identify the symptoms of COVID-19. Being familiar with them allows us to better protect ourselves and others.
All students, parents, and school staff should conduct a daily COVID-19 symptom self-screening before coming on campus.
Please do not come on campus if you:
- Tested positive for COVID-19
- Are showing symptoms of COVID-19 (see below)
- Have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for (or is being monitored for) COVID-19
- Are waiting to get tested, or waiting for COVID-19 test results
- Have been out of the country in the last 14 days
If you have you had any of these symptoms (even if mild) in the last 14 days, please refrain from visiting any of our school sites:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Fever greater than 100 degrees
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle or body aches
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
Although most people with COVID-19 will start out with only one or two of these symptoms — and the symptoms will generally be very mild — people tend to be the most contagious during the first several days after symptom onset.
