Magnus Mobile V2 App

Daily screening questionnaire

As described in A Guide to Reopening Our School, ECFS requires a daily screening for the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and history of exposure to potential or confirmed cases of COVID-19. Students’ parents/guardians must complete a daily pre-arrival questionnaire administered through the Magnus Health app before their children depart for School.

The questionnaire will determine whether the student has:

  1. knowingly been in close or proximate contact in the past 14 days with anyone who has tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19;

  2. tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19 in the past 14 days;

  3. experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, including a temperature of greater than 100oF, in the past 14 days; and/or

  4. traveled internationally or from a state with widespread community transmission of COVID-19 per the New York State Travel Advisory in the past 14 days.

At the completion of the questionnaire each morning, you will receive a message with the student’s attendance instruction for that day. If you have more than one student, you will need to do a screening for each student every morning. You do not need to complete the screening questionnaire on the days in which your child is scheduled to learn remotely.
