COVID Symptom Checker

Parents and guardians are encouraged to monitor their children for signs of infectious illness every day. Students who have symptoms or who have had a close contact or potential exposure to someone with COVID-19 should not attend school in-person. If a child has symptoms of COVID-19, students can be tested by the school nurse at their school by making an appointment or you can reach out to your healthcare provider to discuss testing. People with one or more of the following symptoms may have COVID-19: 

  • Fever or chills 
  • Cough 
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
  • Fatigue 
  • Muscle or body aches 
  • Headache 
  • New loss of taste or smell 
  • Sore throat 
  • Congestion or runny nose 
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Diarrhea
