Updated Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Schools Fact Sheet for Families

October 7, 2020

Good Afternoon Families:

The Province recently announced improvements are being made to ensure Nova Scotians with symptoms of COVID-19 get tested faster. More information about this announcement is available at: https://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20201001005.

This announcement highlighted a new online self-assessment tool for COVID-19. It is available at https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca . Families can always call 811 if they can’t access the online tool.

As a result of these improvements, please find attached an updated fact sheet for families entitled Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Schools for your reference. You will notice at the top of the fact sheet a link to the COVID-19 Daily Checklist to be used to screen children each day before sending them on the school bus and/or to school.

Thank you.
