Children can continue to go to school/childcare if they are well and do not show signs or symptoms of illness, unless they are notified by AHS that they have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19. If your child/children are sick, they must stay home.
Use the links below to find specific information about what to do if your child feels unwell and/or has been notified by AHS as a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19. These resources have also been translated into eight languages.
Note: Chronic symptoms that can be explained by a pre-existing medical condition (e.g., allergies) would be considered part of the child’s baseline health status. As long as these symptoms do not change, the child can continue to attend school/childcare. A child should have one negative COVID-19 test to establish this baseline.
