Parent Assessment Tools
COVID-19 Parent Screening Tool
The province has created a screening tool to help parents and guardians make decisions about whether or not their child/children can attend school. This tool should be completed daily before attending school. No personal information is requested when completing the tool, which means that you and/or your child/children cannot be personally identified or linked to your responses. Using this tool is voluntary. It is recommended that you contact a healthcare provider if you have more questions about your child/children’s health. This tool is subject to change as further guidance from the Ministry of Health and evidence related to COVID-19 risks becomes available.
The tool can be accessed at: Electronic Parent Screening Tool
A helpful one-page printable resource has also been created: Should my child attend school? (2058 downloads)
