TDSB and TPH Revised Screening Protocols

Toronto Public Health has updated its COVID-19 student screening tool to prevent further opportunities for virus spread. Decision Guide has been updated as well. 

As part of this guidance, if a child has one or more new, or worsening COVID-19 symptoms, parents will now be required to:

  1. Keep child home.
  2. Keep siblings and other children home, even if they do not have symptoms.
  3. Arrange for the child to get tested or contact their health care provider.
  4. Without testing, the child must stay home for 10 days.
  5. Monitor the family for symptoms. Adults must stay home if they have one or more symptom.

The TDSB will begin using this new screening guidance starting Monday, December 7, 2020. New Student Health Pass can be found here.

Toronto Public Health Guide

We’ve compiled some of the Toronto Public Health information to help you determine if your child should attend school. Note, there are different instructions supplied by Toronto Public Health if a classroom is compromised. Please follow the instructions they send you if that is the case.
