Fairfax County school screening procedures for Ebola


FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WUSA9) -- The cold and flu season is coming, but this year will be different because of the Ebola virus.

For the first time, some students will be asked about their family's travel history. Depending on their answers, they may be sent home for 21 days.

Fairfax County Public Schools was first to enact the new policy. Now, several others, including Prince William County Schools, have followed suit.

When a child develops a fever of at least 100.4 Fahrenheit in school, the school nurse or aide is to ask if the child or a family member has recently been to Ebola-affected countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea.

Lea Woolsey, Fairfax County Public Schools Director of Operations and Strategic planning for the Department of Special Services says the new policy is a partnership with the Health Department.
