Daily Health Check
Everyone going into a District school or site must complete a daily health check, including staff, students, and visitors. A daily health check means checking yourself or your child for new symptoms of illness, including symptoms of COVID-19.
Symptoms of illness (including COVID-19) include:
What to Do When Sick
If you have mild symptoms of COVID-19, you usually don’t need a test. Mild symptoms are
symptoms that can be managed at home. Most people don’t need testing for COVID-19.
Stay home and away from others (as much as possible) until you feel well enough to return to your regular activities and you no longer have a fever. You should also avoid non-essential visits to higher risk settings such as long term care facilities and gatherings, for another 5 days after ending isolation.
If you have a Rapid Antigen Test at home, use it when you have symptoms. How long you should
stay home depends on your test result. Find out more about Rapid Antigen Test results.
If you do not have symptoms of COVID-19, you do not need a test.
If you are unsure about your symptoms, you can use the Self-Assessment Tool, contact your health care provider or call 8-1-1.
Testing may be recommended for some people who may be more likely to get severe disease.
See BCCDC for information on who testing is recommended for.
