Daily Home Health Assessment
School and DDOE employees who are working on site during the COVID-19 outbreak must perform a self- screening at home BEFORE reporting to work or school each day. Please answer the following questions.
In the past 14 days, have you been near (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) a person who has a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19, or have you had direct contact with their mucus or saliva?
In the last 48 hours, have you had any of the following symptoms?
- Fever of 100.4 F or above (or symptoms like alternating shivering and sweating)
- New cough or New trouble breathing, shortness of breath or severe wheezing
- New chills or shaking with chills
- New muscle aches
- Sore throat
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- New loss of smell or taste, or a change in taste
- Headache, congestion or runny nose with no other known cause (such as allergies)
If you answered YES to any of the questions above, do NOT report to work or school today. Instead, contact your supervisor and your doctor. It is the responsibility of the District employee to follow the guidelines as outlined in the home health-screening tool above. As a reminder, staff and student health information is not to be collected by anyone but the school nurse or other medical provider. If you are currently collecting staff health information, please stop this process immediately. Electronic QR codes and/or links, are appropriate for visitors and other contracted staff, such as, but not limited to, substitute teachers, and service providers, as long as, the nurse is accessing and monitoring the data. The Identakid system has been configured by our Technology department to allow for the health screening for visitors. Please let me know if you need any assistance with Identakid.
