My child isn’t feeling well, what should I do?
Tri-Valley will be following the latest recommended guidance from NYSED & CDC which supersedes all previous guidance.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms.
Possible symptoms include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
This list does not include all possible symptoms.
When to Isolate: Regardless of vaccination status, you should isolate from others when you have COVID-19.
If you are exposed, wear a well-fitting mask for a full 10-day period and get tested at least 5 days after close contact or sooner if symptoms develop regardless of vaccination status.
You can end your isolation.
If you had symptoms:
- If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home.
- Day 0 of isolation is the day of symptom onset, regardless of when you tested positive
- Day 1 is the first full day after the day your symptoms started
If you had no symptoms:
- Day 0 is the day you were tested (not the day you received your positive test result)
- Day 1 is the first full day following the day you were tested
- If you develop symptoms within 10 days of when you were tested, the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset
Health Office Best Practice
