Updated Self-Screening Tool

Submit Your Daily Screening Here

On January 3, 2022 the government of Ontario announced a range of time-limited public health actions to help curb the spread of COVID-19 variants in Ontario, this includes updates made to the COVID-19 school and child care screening tool.
On the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, a more sensitive COVID-19 symptom list is being reinstated for daily active screening of all students and staff in schools and child care. Anyone who has symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 or is a confirmed positive case must self-isolate, regardless of vaccination status.  
Updated versions of the screening tool are posted on Ontario's School Screening Website. Upon the return to in-person learning, students must complete the screening tool daily before attending school. A requirement for verification of daily self-assessment will also be in place until further notice for all students provincially.

The Ministry of Education will continue to update the screening tool as public health guidance evolves. Thank you once again for your ongoing partnership and continued efforts to keep our students and staff safe.
