COVID-19 Screening

You must stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms or are waiting for test results after experiencing symptoms (not related to a COVID-19 vaccine, as noted below).

Everyone in your household (unless they are fully vaccinated) must also stay home until you get a negative COVID-19 test result, or you are cleared by public health, or you are diagnosed with another illness.

COVID-19 vaccine side effects

You can go to school/childcare if you or anyone in your household got a COVID-19 vaccine in the last 48 hours and is experiencing any of these symptoms that are mild and only began after vaccination:

  • headache
  • fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • muscle aches
  • joint pain

This screening cannot diagnose you. If you have medical questions, consult a health care provider or your local public health unit.  Listen to the advice of your local public health unit first, as their advice overrules the advice in this screening.

You must screen for COVID-19 every day before going to school/childcare.
