Information for Parents: Taking Your Student For a Mouth Rinse & Gargle Covid-19 Test New

Please see attached information regarding the new Covid-19 testing option for school-aged students.  

Parents and caregivers should assess their child daily for key symptoms of illness before sending them to school. See enclosed link to Appendix C of the Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools which provides an example of a daily health check. If your child has one symptom that persists for more than 24 hours, a fever, or two or more symptoms from the list, they should be assessed. Please use the COVID-19 assessment tool (https://bc.thrive.health) to determine if your child should seek testing.

Symptoms of COVID-19 as listed on the BCCDC website are: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, loss of sense of smell or taste, headache, fatigue, diarrhea, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and muscle aches. 

 The following information is based on the Provincial COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines for K-12 Settings, which all K-12 schools in BC are expected to follow: 
• If your child is experiencing symptoms of illness, they should not return to school until they have been assessed by a healthcare provider to exclude COVID-19 or other infectious diseases AND their symptoms have resolved. 

 You will not be required to provide a doctor’s note for your child to return to school and your family’s personal privacy will be respected. School staff will not provide notification to staff or students’ families about potential or confirmed COVID-19 cases unless the school principal is directed to do so by public health. 

Should you have any further questions or require additional support, please contact the school principal
