     School Nurse Protocol for COVID-19 Pandemic Distance Learning Phase 3/21/20

This “sample” protocol is being posted to assist school nurses with planning. It is not a substitute for nursing judgment and does not dictate an exclusive course of action. State and district laws and policies must be followed. While our students are home and Distance Learning, school nurses can be supportive in a number of ways.   School Nurse Protocol for COVID-19 Pandemic Distance Learning Phase  --  Updated 4-05-2020

Presidents Letter - COVID-19

As we enter the pandemic phase of COVID-19, and our schools are closed, there are a few things you can do to support your school community. While teachers are busy preparing for Distance Learning, school nurses can also find ways to do our job from a virtual perspective.

First, as your staff come in and out of the buildings, you can post a sign asking any teacher or staff person not to enter if:

      • They have any symptoms of a cold, virus, fever, or cough.
      • If they have traveled to high risk areas internationally or domestically
      • If they have been exposed to a person who has tested positive to COVID-19 within the past 2 weeks

Influenza Like Illness Reporting

The time it takes to report is very small. The impact is quite large!
All schools are strongly encouraged to report student absenteeism to assist with public health tracking and monitoring of infectious diseases. The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) uses this school-reported data to monitor and evaluate potential outbreaks or clusters of disease in local communities.  Please do your part!  DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS
