COVID-19 Update Regarding Temperature Screenings

The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), in consultation with the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), has updated the flagship Healthy at School guidance based on the latest information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Temperature screening expectations have been changed to state that only symptomatic students need to be screened for fever.  Routine temperature screenings prior to school or bus entry are no longer required. Students who exhibit symptoms of illness while at school will have their temperature taken as part of a physical assessment completed by school staff.
