NYSDOH COVID-19 Protocol

A student should remain home if displaying any ONE of the following symptoms:

-Fever > or equal to 100 degrees Fahrenheit or Feeling feverish or with chills

-Cough

-Loss of taste or smell

-Fatigue/feeling of tiredness

-Sorethroat

-Shortness of breath or trouble breathing

-Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

-Muscle Pain or body aches

-Headaches

-Nasal congestion/runny nose

If your child has any ONE of the above symptoms, they need to be evaluated by their health care provider.  DO NOT send them to school.

Scenario 1: Your healthcare provider gives an alternative diagnosis of a known chronic condition with unchanged symptoms OR a confirmed acute illness (examples Laboratory confirmed influenza, strep throat) AND COVID-19 is not suspected then a note signed by their HCP explaining the alternate diagnosis is required. Note: A signed note documenting unconfirmed acute illnesses, such as viral URI (upper respiratory infection) or viral gastroenteritis, will not suffice. 

Scenario 2: Your healthcare provider recommends a COVID-19 test, they MUST stay out of school and in isolation until the test result is back. If Positive, Public Health will be contacting you. If negative, as long as the symptoms are improving AND they are fever free for at least 24hours without the use of fever reducing medication, they may return to school WITH a note from their HCP indicating the test was negative OR provide a copy of the negative test results. 

Scenario 3: (not recommended) A COVID-19 test was recommended but not done OR not evaluated by their HCP as recommended-Person MUST remain in isolation at home and is not able to go back to school until the health department has released them from isolation which will be at least 10days after the start of symptoms AND symptoms are improving AND they are fever free for at least 72hours without the use of fever reducing medication.

—————————————————————————————————————————
If Your child has a pending COVID-19 test, they need to remain home until it is negative and you are able to provide me with a note from their HCP indicating the test was negative OR provide a copy of the negative test results. Even if a Rapid COVID-19 test was performed and was negative, if they have a "send out" COVID test pending, they are to remain home.

Please review the link below from the NYSDOH for guidance on what to do in certain situations.
