Doctors of BC has created two resources to help parents and family doctors navigate health decisions for children attending school during the COVID-19 pandemic. These are based on work done by the Victoria and South Island Divisions of Family Practice.
The decision-making tool helps parents and physicians identify the steps to follow in the following scenarios:
- Managing COVID-19 Symptoms at Home
- Self-Isolating at Home
- Managing COVID-19 Symptoms at School
- Managing COVID-19 Exposures at School
A second document provides guidance about when a doctor’s note is required. It can also be downloaded here.
For detailed information, please review the BCCDC Public Health Guidance for K-12.
