If a child fails the screen and is unvaccinated (has fever/chills, cough/barking cough, shortness of breath, decreased or loss of taste, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea):

  1. DO NOT send child to school.
  2. DO NOT send sibling(s) to school if the child staying home has failed the screen. (Siblings or other unvaccinated people in the home must stay home until the symptomatic person tests negative or are cleared by the local health unit or diagnosed with another illness).
