Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is aware of Ontario’s new COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening Tool that was released October 1, 2020. OPH is in the process of updating its own COVID-19 Screening Tool to reflect the changes regarding the type and number of symptoms needed for a child to stay home. OPH will also be reviewing its recommendations for when families are required to isolate and seek testing. Families and school boards in Ottawa are encouraged to continue to use the COVID-19 screening tool on our website until the revised screening tool becomes available. OPH will advise when the new screening tool becomes available.
