If your child recovers within a day, stay home with the child until she or he has been completely symptom-free for at least two days before sending her or him back to preschool. Your child must not have a runny nose nor even the slightest symptoms; your child must be completely healthy.
When the symptoms do not go away within a day, your child must stay at home for at least seven days, and the last two days before returning to preschool your child must have been fever-free and feeling well. After seven days, your child can return to preschool even if she or he is still coughing intermittently, provided that you child has been fever-free and alert for at least two days.
If a Covid-19 test has been taken and is negative, your child still cannot return to preschool until the above criteria are met. Even if your child has a “common cold”, she/he can still infect others who then in turn must stay at home, get tested, etc.
In summary, no children with symptoms may come to preschool - in this way we can counteract the spread of infection and help each other!
When someone in the household has been confirmed to have Covid-19, everyone in the household must stay home for one week after the test was taken. With the exception of children under 6 years of age, Covid-19 testing is recommended for everyone in the household on Day 5.
