Daily symptom screening prior to coming to school is important for catching potential cases early and keeping them out of classrooms. Symptom screening is also an important tool for extracurricular activities.
Individuals are assumed to be contagious two days before they start having symptoms and 10 days after symptoms start. COVID-like symptoms may include any or many of the following: loss of taste or smell, fever (100.4°F or higher), chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, headache, sore throat, muscle or body aches, congestion or runny nose, fatigue, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
One of the best things we can do to keep schools safe and operating is to stay home when we are not feeling well and follow requirements for isolation of cases of COVID-19.
COVIDCheck Colorado is continuing to offer in-school testing for all students and staff. As an additional layer of protection, everyone is encouraged to participate in COVID testing regardless of vaccination status.
CDPHE recommends that students of all ages who are actively participating in at least weekly serial testing should not be required to quarantine following typical classroom exposures to a positive case of COVID-19.
