Back to School/Back to Daycare/Back to Work Self Attestation
We are posting a document here that was created by the Pediatrics Section of the Ontario Medical Association. Hopefully this will help parents with return to school.
We believe that Doctor’s notes are not an appropriate use of health system resources; they potentially put patients, teachers and contacts at further risk and physicians are not generally in a position to adjudicate such matters.
Instead, we feel that parents and families can use this “Self-Attestation” form to fill and assess whether or not it is safe or prudent to go back to school/daycare or work. Please be honest and responsible when completing the checklist as the continued control of spread of virus in our community depends on strategies to keep those who may spread the disease away from others.
