Alberta Health has updated the daily screening tool.
The most significant change reflects two separate screening tools for staff/adults and students.
The New Student Screening Tool:
In the new screening tool that has been developed for students, the critical core symptoms have changed. Students experiencing any of the core symptoms must self-isolate for 10 days:
Shortness of breath
Loss of sense of smell or taste
A secondary checklist has now been developed for students with other symptoms. Please review the new screening tool from Alberta Health and familiarize yourself with the preventative steps that are required: AHS Student Screening Tool
Adult/Staff Screening Tool:
Alberta Health Services has a separate screening tool for Staff/Adults, please note that this tool has also been updated.
All of our Golden Hills’ schools have appreciated the support of parents, students and staff in their use of the screening tool on a daily basis. This commitment has helped to reduce the risk of transmission in our schools and we thank parents for their continued support as we make the necessary changes to use this new updated checklist.
