COVID Symptom Protocol


At this time, all students with Covid-19 like symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, must be
evaluated by a medical provider and submit a note with a diagnosis to the health office indicating a return date prior to attending school or any school sponsored activities. It is up to the medical provider to determine if Covid-19 testing is needed. If Covid-19 testing is done, the school nurses will need a copy of the result along with the doctor’s note prior to return. Students should not be sent to school/sports/extra-curricular activities when sick.

 

NJDOH recommends that students with the following symptoms be promptly isolated:
At least two of the following symptoms:
Fever (measured or subjective)
Chills
Rigors (shivers)
Headache
Fatigue
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Body aches
Nausea/vomiting
Diarrhea
OR
At least one of the following symptoms:
Cough
Shortness of breath
Difficulty breathing
New loss of taste or smell

Doctor’s notes and results can be sent to our assigned nurse, Mrs. Angela Valerio.


This guidance will be updated as new information becomes available from NJDOH and CDC.
