Stay home when sick

  • Please remember to monitor your students daily for symptoms using the daily health screening tool, keep them home if they’re ill and call the school’s attendance line at their school if your child has symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19. 

COVID-19 testing opportunies

  • The Minnesota Department of Health encourages the following groups to get tested regularly. With the at-home program and community sites offering free testing across the metro, it's easy to find a test.

    • Unvaccinated teachers, staff and students in K-12 should test weekly at a minimum or more frequently per CDC guidance.
    • People who are unvaccinated should test before travel (domestic or international).
    • Even if you are vaccinated, you should get tested
      • if you have symptoms of the virus;
      • if you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19;
      • if you are returning from international travel;
      • or if you have attended a large gathering or event where people are not wearing masks and are not able to stay 6 feet apart.
