ALLERGY SYMPTOMS DURING COVID-19

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In an attempt to limit the spread of COVID-19, it is important to promptly identify, separate, and ensure that symptomatic students are evaluated and treated as necessary. Many possible COVID-19 symptoms may be similar to common allergy symptoms and it is often difficult to tell the difference.

If your child experiences known seasonal allergies, please request a note from your child’s medical provider stating what typical symptoms your child may exhibit when experiencing allergies. This will allow the district RN to have a baseline of possible symptoms for your child and will be less likely to send your student home for suspected illness.

The medical provider must be licensed in the state of Colorado and have current prescriptive privileges.

The medical provider note should include the following:

● What the child is allergic to

● What symptoms are typical for the child

● What allergy medications the child takes to treat symptoms

Each symptomatic child will be evaluated on a case by case basis and the district RN may be contacting you for more information.

Thank you very much for your understanding and patience during this unusual time.
