COVID update January 2022

Dear families,

As we continue to try and adapt to the ever changing COVID situation and provincial recommendations, I would like to outline the following approach to someone showing symptoms that may be related to COVID:

  1.     Individual over 12 and fully vaccinated, or a child under 12 should: isolate for at least five (5) days from the onset of symptoms AND the symptoms have been improving for 24 hours (48 hours if the symptoms were gastrointestinal)
  2.   Individual over 12 and not fully vaccinated, or immune compromised should: isolate for 10 days from the onset of symptoms AND the symptoms have been improving for 24 hours (48 hours if the symptoms were gastrointestinal)
  3.  All household members of the person showing symptoms, regardless of their vaccination status, should stay at home while the person with symptoms is isolating (see #1 and #2 above). If the household member starts to display symptoms, they should follow the isolation times listed above.

Symptoms Include:

Fever/Chills; Cough; Shortness of breath; Decrease or loss of taste or smell

If two or more of the following symptoms appear together, they should be considered as probable COVID infection and follow isolation protocols listed above:

  • Runny nose/nasal congestion
  • Headache
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle aches/joint pain
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms (i.e. vomiting or diarrhea)

If you are showing symptoms listed above, please notify ISAND as soon as possible to re-schedule or discuss alternate options for in-person appointments. As the COVID situation changes we will be revising our approach.

Be well and stay safe
