• Each morning all school faculty should assess themselves for symptoms of influenza.
• Students or faculty with influenza‐like illness (fever and cough or sore throat) should stay

• If a child or adult is ill with other symptoms, they should stay home at least one day to observe
how the illness develops and until completely fever‐free for 24 hours.
• Schools should screen students and staff for visible signs of possible influenza illness upon arri‐
val at school.
• Students and staff who appear ill at arrival or become ill at school should be promptly isolated
and sent home.
• Persons who are ill should stay home and not go into the community unless they need medical
care. Ill students should not attend alternative child care.
• As always, situations can be individualized and school authorities may close school at their dis‐
