Important information: Daily Health Assessment

On October 26, 2020, we will launch the Daily Health Assessment symptoms tracking tool to help us continue efforts to prevent the spread of illness.

Important details:

  • This tool is mandatory for all employees and optional for students, but we strongly encourage participation to help us mitigate exposure and risks.
  • Each employee and student/parent will receive a daily email notification, starting at 5:00 a.m., to complete the assessment prior to or upon arrival to his/her assigned District site.
  • The District will use the email address currently in Infinite Campus with your student’s assigned school. Please check/update your email address to ensure you receive the Daily Health Assessment email notifications.
  • If an employee or student/parent does not receive the email notifications, he/she can use the QR codes posted/links on our COVID-19 site and at the entrance of all District buildings.
    • View QR code instructions.
    • Note: Some phones may require you to download a QR Code Scanner from your phone an app store.
  • Employees who may have tested positive or been exposed to someone who tested positive must report this to their immediate supervisor and Tracy Fox, Director of Risk Management, or Jeannie Polhamus, Lead School Nurse via exposuretracking@muscogee.k12.ga.us.
  • Parents with a student/students who may have tested positive or been exposed to someone who tested positive must report this to their principal and Tracy Fox, Director of Risk Management, or Jeannie Polhamus, Lead School Nurse via exposuretracking@muscogee.k12.ga.us.

    • At least 10 days have passed since the student first displayed symptoms AND
    • The student has had no fever without fever reducing medicines (e.g. Tylenol, Advil, etc.) for 48 hours AND
    • The student is no longer displaying symptoms
  • If someone in your household has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or your child is exposed to someone who has COVID-19, do not send him/her to school until 14 days after their last exposure to the person with COVID-19 (note: The CDC defines exposure as being within six feet for a total of 15 minutes or more with someone who has COVID-19).
