A Statement from Nurse Keith: Self Monitoring for Covid related symptoms 2020-09-08T13:16:19-04:00

As we navigate through this challenging time, we ask that we take it upon ourselves to self monitor for any Covid related symptoms and if they are present you need to stay home, contact the school, and consult your physician for a test. At this point in our mitigation even a mild head cold, or other common infection can set off alarm bells, which could result in shutting down of cohorts, or even the entire campus. It is best to err on the side of caution. In the meantime, Educators and Support staff have made it easier to distance learn when students are unable to attend. This same illness policy goes for students as well as staff.


People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Due to the current travel advisory issued by the state of Connecticut, please be advised that if a student or staff member travels to a state on the list, they must self quarantine for 14 days. This is regardless of a negative test. Here is a link to the travel advisory page,https://portal.ct.gov/Coronavirus/travel. Please keep in mind that this list has been constantly changing based on the infection rate of a given state. It would be smart to check the list before traveling outside of Connecticut.
