Return To School Guidelines

Along with FCPS and the Frederick County Health Department,
we are carefully monitoring data
from the CDC and the Maryland Health Department to ensure
that all families have accurate information regarding
policies and procedures to keep our children and patients healthy
when returning to the school buildings. 

FCPS has sent out a Student Health and Safety and COVID-19 Response Plan,
which can be found on the blue "FCPS Hybrid Learning Model"

Please monitor your child for the following symptoms:
  • New onset cough or shortness of breath

  • Temp 100.4 or greater

  • Muscle/body aches

  • Fatigue

  • Sore throat

  • Headache

  • Loss of Taste/Smell

  • Nausea/Vomiting/Diarrhea

A student who has a positive COVID-19 test must meet the following criteria before returning to school: 
  • Notify the student's school

  • Stay home at least 10 days after the symptoms first appeared

  • Have no fever for at least 24 hours without medication

  • Demonstrate improvement of other symptoms

  • If asymptomatic, individuals must stay home for 10 days after the positive test was preformed. 

Please note- Our office DOES NOT provide COVID-19 testing.
We also, do not provide notes to return to school without an exam.
