This guide is currently being updated. A new version will be posted soon. People who have been immunized and are close contacts may have different quarantine requirements. See Quarantine for Immunized Close Contacts for more information.
Children can keep going to school, childcare or camps if they’re well and don’t show signs or symptoms of being sick. If your child is sick, or you are notified by AHS that they’ve been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, they must stay home.
See below to find information about what to do if your child feels unwell or has been a close contact of someone who has COVID-19. These resources are available in 8 languages.
Note: Chronic symptoms that can be explained by a pre-existing medical condition (such as allergies) are considered part of your child’s baseline health. As long as these symptoms don’t change, the child can continue to go to school or childcare. Your child should have one negative COVID-19 test to set this baseline.
