Covid-messaging resources for schools

Clark County Health has provided schools with a COVID School Screening and Exclusion Flowchart which can be shared with families to help them understand the parameters around why a child should be kept home.  Important to note is the qualifying *Not caused by an underlying condition besides the list of symptoms.  A runny nose due to seasonal allergies which occur every year is something attributable to another condition.  Whereas fever is a symptom of illness or infection, always a reason for a child to not be allowed in school.
