Health Screenings and Self-Certification for Entry to the School

  • Health Screening

    Screening checks are required for all staff, students, and visitors entering the building or arriving on campus. The Safety Department checks the temperatures of every person upon arrival to ETHS. For contact tracing purposes only, temperatures above 100.4 along with answers to the questions below, will be recorded and routed to Human Resources for follow up with the local health department. The following series of questions will be asked to certify the absence of COVID-19 symptoms and/or contact. 

    1. Take your temperature. Is it higher than 100.4?
    2. Are you experiencing a fever, cough, chills and/ or muscle aches?
    3. Do you have a sore throat, runny nose or a loss of taste or smell?
    4. Do you feel nauseous or have vomited and/ or diarrhea?
    5. Are you experiencing shortness of breath and/ or headache?
    6. Have you had any close contact or cared for someone with COVID-19 in the last 14-days?
    7. Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
    8. Have you traveled outside the state of Illinois in the past 14 days?
      • Anyone that has visited one of the "orange" or "red" locations currently on the Chicago Travel Quarantine List cannot participate for 14 days after their return.

    Only persons who answer “no” to the above questions will be admitted into the building or on the ETHS campus. Any person who answers “yes” to any of the above questions will not be permitted to stay on campus.
