VCS to Discontinue Routine Temperature Checks

In consultation with the Volusia County Health Department and in keeping with current CDC guidelines, VCS will discontinue routine temperature screenings at schools and district offices.

According to the CDC, “Based on the best available evidence at this time, the CDC does not currently recommend schools conduct symptom screening for all students on a routine basis.”

Volusia County Health Department Administrator Patricia Boswell told VCS it’s important that families, “…continue to monitor your children for symptoms of infectious illness every day through home-based symptom screening. Students who are sick should not attend school in-person.”
