Toronto Public Health has updated the student screening tool. A copy was sent home with all students on Friday December 4. The updated screening tool is available here. The changes include a new requirement that if a student has even one symptom on the screening tool, they must stay home, self-isolate and get tested at an Assessment Centre. In addition, their siblings and other children in the household will also need to self-isolate.
As always, please follow the public health measures to keep everyone safe.
