COVID-19 school and child care screening

Answer the following questions to help you decide if you should or should not go to school/child care today.

Everyone in your household must stay home if anyone has COVID-19 symptoms or is waiting for test results after experiencing symptoms.

Stay home until the person with symptoms gets a negative COVID-19 test result, or is cleared by public health, or is diagnosed with another illness.

This screening cannot diagnose you. If you have medical questions, consult a health care provider or your local public health unit.  Listen to the advice of your local public health unit first, as their advice overrules the advice in this screening.

You must screen for COVID-19 every day before going to school/child care.

Using this tool is optional. If your school board, child care provider, or public health unit has another screening process, you can use that instead.
