IF SOMEONE IN THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY FEELS SICK
DOE Building Health Screening
All DOE employees, students, families, and visitors seeking to enter DOE buildings must complete a health screening before entering DOE facilities. This health screening must be completed on each day of arrival and results will reset at midnight of each day. Upon entering the facility you will be asked to provide the results of your screening either by showing your phone or a printout of the results.
TESTING AND TRACING
All staff members will be asked to take a COVID-19 test in the days before the first day of school. School staff will have priority access for testing at 34 city-run testing locations with tests provided free of charge and with expedited results. This testing is also available for families citywide.
Whether symptoms begin at home or in school, there will be a clear flow of information to facilitate fast action and prevent spread. A positive confirmed case will trigger an investigation by NYC Test + Trace and DOHMH to determine close contacts within the school. Schools will communicate to all families and students at school once a case is laboratory confirmed.
COVID-19 SCHOOL HEALTH POLICY
The COVID-19 Health and Safety document was developed collaboratively with unions, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), and NYC Test & Trace Corp, this policy provides guidance for schools regarding school threshold opening and closures, daily health screening, isolation rooms, showing signs of COVID-19, procedures of a confirmed case, and testing scenarios.
