  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting within the last 24 hours
  • Diarrhea within the last 24 hours
  • A contagious eye infection, particularly conjunctivitis, pink eye etc.
  • A severe earache
  • Cough- If his/her cough brings up mucus or phlegm-type secretions, then stay home. A dry cough is OK.
  • Has recently had a procedure and are on prescription pain medication
  • Did not attend school because they were too sick

If your child has come in close contact with someone that has tested positive for COVID -19 please e-mail and consult your PCP regarding next steps. If your child has come in close contact with someone waiting for COVID-19 testing results, please follow the advice of your PCP. To ensure continuity of care, contact us for therapy options. ***We will evaluate your child when presenting with multiple symptoms to determine appropriateness for therapy***
