If any child shows symptoms of Covid-19, they must be kept at home and a diagnosis must be sought from an approved medical practitioner. If a child tests positive, the parent must email a copy of the PCR test to the school doctor and Lise-Ann. These are critical DHA requirements and have to be treated with the utmost seriousness. The school will then contact the parents of any other child who was in contact with the child in question for contact tracing. A DHA Clearance Certificate for a child who previously tested positive is also required in order for the child to return to school. Asymptomatic close contacts need not isolate.
Please note that the KHDA does not permit online lessons for any other reason except in the case of Covid-19 active cases and symptomatic close contacts. Symptomatic close contacts wll be required to submit a negative PCR to resume lessons
