Symptoms of Illness and Return to School

Students, staff or other adults should stay at home when sick, as this is one of the most important ways to reduce the introduction to and the spread of COVID-19 in schools.

When a staff, student or other adult can return to school depends on the type of symptoms they experienced, if a COVID-19 test is recommended and the result of their test. See Appendix A: COVID-19 Symptoms, Testing & Return to School in the Provincial COVID-19 Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12​ for specific guidance.
