Symptoms of COVID-19

Officially, the CDC states the following are symptoms of COVID-19 and the IDPH states students are to be sent home or denied entry into the school if ANY of the following symptoms are present:

  • Fever (100.4 F or higher)
  • New onset of moderate to severe headache
  • Fatigue from unknown cause
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Sore throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • New cough
  • New congestion/runny nose
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain from unknown cause
  • New loss of sense of taste or smell

*New onset of a symptom is not attributed to allergies or a pre-existing condition.

As a community, we are counting on every parent/guardian to physically look at their child/ren and review with them each morning the questions on the self-certification form in their lanyard before signing it and sending them to school.
