WHAT IF MY KID FAILS THE MORNING SCREENING? DO WE GO TO SCHOOL? WHAT DO WE DO? YOUR ANSWERS......

WHAT IF MY KID FAILS THE VIRUS SCREENING IN THE MORNING?

Firstly, if your child has a chronic medical condition, are the child’s symptoms worse or different than normal?

If the same, your kid may attend school (with stable symptoms of a known chronic condition), but speak to your family doctor if you have any concerns.

If yes, call the school and inform them of your kid’s illness. Your kid should stay home and seek medical advice.

However, if your kid was tested they are required self-isolate while the results are pending. If the results are negative, and your kid has no known exposure, attend school when the symptoms are resolved for 24 hours.

If it has been recommended to be tested, but you did not get tested, and if no alternative diagnosis was given, your kid should self-isolate for 14 days from the onset of the symptoms.
