What To Do If Your Child Is Sick

What happens if a student has symptoms of COVID-19 or a diagnosis of COVID-19?

  • If a child has COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19, they must isolate and cannot attend school until all the following are true:

    • It has been at least 10 days since their symptoms started

    • They have not had a fever within the last 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication

    • Their overall illness has improved

  • If the person never had symptoms but had a positive lab test for COVID-19, they must stay home for 10 days from the date the specimen was obtained for their positive COVID19 test.

  • If the person had symptoms and receives a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test result, they can return to school after they have not had fever for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications. The negative test result must be from a lab-confirmed diagnostic test. If you’re not sure if your test is lab-confirmed, ask the health care provider performing your test.

  • If COVID-19 has been confirmed by a diagnostic test (nose or throat swab, or saliva), all close contacts of the person must quarantine and cannot attend school for 14 days after their last contact with the person while they were infectious. A close contact is a person who has been within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for at least 10 minutes.
