Updates to Student COVID-19 Screening Procedures

Toronto Public Health announced on December 4 that it has updated its COVID-19 student screening tool to prevent further opportunities for virus spread.

As part of this guidance, if a child has one or more new, or worsening COVID-19 symptoms, parents will now be required to:

1. Keep their child home.
2. Keep siblings and other children home, even if they do not have symptoms.
3. Arrange for the child to get tested or contact their health care provider.
4. Without testing, the child must stay home for 10 days.
5. Monitor the family for symptoms. Adults must stay home if they have one or more symptoms.
