Revised Covid-19 Screening Tool

Effective Monday, October 18th, 2021, York Region Public Health will require students, parents and guardians to use the provincial COVID-19 school and child care screening tool, in replacement of the York Region Public Health tool currently in use.

As a reminder, anyone experiencing symptoms, including mild symptoms not included on the provincial screening tool (e.g., runny nose, sore throat, etc.) should NOT attend school or child care. If your child has mild symptoms not listed on the screening tool, they can return to school or child care once their symptoms have improved for 24 hours. If your child does have symptoms listed on the screening tool, or their symptoms get worse, they are required to have a PCR COVID-19 test or stay home for 10 days.
