There are some symptoms that are similar between COVID-19, a cold, the flu, seasonal allergies and asthma. Use our symptom comparison chart to help determine if staff or a student may be feeling symptoms of asthma, allergies or a respiratory illness like COVID-19, the flu or a cold. If staff or students have a fever and a cough, they should call their doctor and not attempt to go to school. You will also find tips on how to help stop the spread of the new coronavirus.
Print this resource at home on card stock and hand out to staff, parents and students. It is available in English and Spanish. You can also find our full COVID-19 and Asthma Toolkit for Schools here (available as a PDF download).
Some people may spread the virus that causes COVID-19 without showing symptoms. Students and staff should still stay home at the first sign of symptoms or illness. Strongly encourage staff and students who are sick, or who have recently had contact with a person with COVID-19, to stay home. Monitor symptoms and temperatures of any student, staff and volunteers entering the school building daily.
