IMPORTANT: COVID-19 SYMPTOMS:
*updated Oct 13
Dear CLES Parents/Guardians: If your child is exhibiting ONE (1) symptom or more on the checklist, DO NOT send them to school.
There is a mandatory 10 day isolation period from the start of symptoms, or until symptoms resolve whichever takes longer for the following symptoms: fever, cough (new cough or worsening chronic cough), shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, runny nose, and sore throat. You could also book a COVID -19 test for your child, and your child can return to school if the test is negative and the symptom (s) are gone.
If your child has any of the other symptoms on the checklist (ie. headache), they need to stay home until their symptoms have resolved, but are not required to isolate for 10 days.
You are encouraged to access COVID-19 testing by accessing the AHS Online Testing tool. Please make sure your child is healthy before coming to school. CLICK HERE FOR THE CHECKLIST
AHS has launched a tool for parents to walk you through symptoms and provides info about next steps for testing and isolation, when household members need to isolate and when children can return to school. The tool is now available at ahs.ca/parentCOVIDGuide.
Parents/guardians with questions about their own health or the health of their child should call Health Link at 811 or visit ahs.ca/testing.
Individuals looking for general COVID-19 info are encouraged to visit ahs.ca/covid or alberta.ca/covid19
