Daily Wellness Screenings: Guidelines manual released by California’s Department of Education makes it clear that staff and students will have temperature checks upon entering schools and buses during this time. This will also include:
Passive Screening. Parents are instructed to screen students before leaving for school (check temperature to ensure temperatures below 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, observe for symptoms outlined by public health officials) and to keep students at home if they have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or if they have had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19.
Active Screening. Schools will actively engage parents and students in symptom and potential exposure screenings as students enter campus and buses, consistent with public health guidance, which includes visual wellness checks and/ temperature checks with no-touch thermometers. All staff will complete an online daily wellness survey and upon sign in obtain a temperature check and sign validating they have no evidence of COVID-19 symptoms within the last 24 hours and have not been in close contact with anyone who has had COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test.
