Self Screening Questionnaire

Self Screening Questionnaire

COVID Self Screening Questionnaire (Revised October 30)

We received some revisions to the COVID-19 Alberta Health daily checklist. The daily checklist now has separate checklists: one for students who attend Kindergarten to Grade 12 and one for staff and adults 18 years and older.  Both checklists are accessible at the link above. 

Adults who are 18 and over, including school staff, will continue to use the Alberta Health daily checklist that was previously posted and available in the link above.  

The revisions to the student checklist take effect on Monday, November 2.  Please note: 

  • Symptoms of runny nose and sore throat have been removed from the mandatory isolation checklist for Albertans under 18.

  • The student daily checklist applies to individuals who are 18 and over and are attending high school. 

  • The core isolation symptoms for children are now one (or more) of the following: cough, fever, loss of taste or smell and shortness of breath. If a child has any of these core symptoms, 

    • They are to isolate for 10 days OR have a negative COVID-19 test result and feel better before they return to school or other activities.

  • If a child has one of the following symptoms: chills; sore throat or painful swallowing; runny nose or congestion; feeling unwell or fatigue; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea; unexplained loss of appetite; muscle or joint aches; headache; or conjunctivitis (pink eye):

    • The child should stay home and monitor for 24 hours. 

    • If their symptom is improving after 24 hours, they can return to school/activities when they feel well enough to attend. Testing is not recommended.  

    • If the symptom worsens after 24 hours, or if additional symptoms emerge, or if the child has any two symptoms from this second list, they are to continue to stay home, and testing is recommended. The child can return to activities and school when their symptoms have resolved AND it has been 24 hours or more since their symptoms started.
