COVID-19 and symptoms we are looking for in school

As per the CDC and NJ Department of Health, any of the symptoms below could indicate a COVID-19 infection in children and may put your child at risk for spreading illness to others.  Please note this does not include all possible symptoms and children with COVID-19 may experience any, all, or none of these symptoms. Please check your child daily for these symptoms:
 
 A
  Fever (measured or subjective)
  chills
  rigors (shivers)
  myalgia (muscle aches)
  headache
  Sore throat
  nausea or vomiting
  diarrhea
  fatigue
  congestion or runny nose
   
B
  New or unexplained cough
  Shortness of breath
  Difficulty breathing
  New loss of smell
  New loss of taste
 
If your child has TWO or more from Table A or at LEAST ONE field in Table B, please keep your child home and notify the school nurse.  Children in school will be sent home to potentially isolate for 10 days unless they have a negative PCR test, nasal PCR preferred. The child must also be improving. At this time we are not accepting rapid covid tests.
