COVID-19 School Screening Tool for Parents: Should My Child Attend School?

You must screen your child for COVID-19 every day before going to school. You can use the online screening tool or download the paper version on the Ministry's website.

  • COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening Tool
    • NEW! If someone in your household is experiencing any symptom of COVID-19, ALL household members must self-isolate until this person receives a negative test result or an alternative diagnosis from a health care provider confirming the symptoms are not related to COVID-19.

If you are an adult who needs to complete a screening for COVID-19, you must use the COVID-19 Self-assessment Tool. It is important to use the right assessment tool since some symptoms that are not considered typical of COVID-19 in children and youth are in fact symptoms of COVID-19 in adults.
