Fever (100.4F or higher) OR two or more of the following symptoms: fatigue, headache, muscle/body aches, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain OR loss of taste and/or smell. This is in addition to general infectious disease exclusion guidance. Parents of children who are ill should contact their child’s health care provider. CDC does not recommend universal symptom screenings (screening all students grades K-12) be conducted by schools. Parents/caregivers should be encouraged to monitor their children for signs of infectious illness every day.
