The documentation must indicate either:
  • Clearance to return to in-person setting; or

As standard procedure, nurses will hard screen all students who return to school after an infection that results in fever. Their temperature will be checked within the first hour of their return to school and a second time after four hours.

All individuals are required to quarantine after international travel and/or travel within designated states with widespread community transmission.
