LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Clark County School District is stressing to parents that students who are COVID-19 positive or experiencing symptoms should not be sent to school.

Parents are reminded to check their child’s health before they leave for school. You must be able to answer “no” to the following questions for a child to be able to attend an in-person class.

  • Does the child have a new cough that can’t be attributed to another health condition?
  • Does the child have a new shortness of breath that can’t be attributed to another health condition?
  • Does the child have cough, chills, sore throadt, muscle pain, fever 100 or higher, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell, congestion, fatigue, headache, runny nose, nause/vomiting, or diarrhea?
  • Has the child come in close contact (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes over a 24 hour period) with someone who has a lab confirmed positive case of COVID-19 diagnosed in the past 10 days?
  • Has the child received a lab confirmed positive COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 10 days?
