Too Sick for School?

Parents/Guardians should follow How Sick is Too Sick - CDPHE’s Illness Policy for Students and Staff in School and Child Care settings. 

  • Students may return to school or child care as long as the symptom(s) have been resolved for 24 hours unless the symptoms are caused by an illness that requires them to stay home longer.

    • COVID testing is recommended, not required, for anyone with COVID-like symptoms or a known exposure

COVID-like symptoms include:

  •  Fever (100.4 and above), chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose or congestion, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea

The best way to prevent the spread of infection is by staying home when sick and through good hand washing.
