Students or employees who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or who are identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive will be sent home with a rapid antigen test kit and directions for how to administer at home. All test results should be uploaded to Daily Pass at dailypass.lausd.net. Symptomatic individuals should go home and test immediately.
It is not necessary to take a confirmatory PCR test if you test positive on an at-home rapid antigen test. If you would like to confirm your test result, however, you can visit an external healthcare provider to take a PCR test. Between taking those two tests, you must continue to isolate at home.
If your child is identified as a close contact of a positive individual outside of school, they can continue to attend school as long as they monitor for symptoms, wear a highly protective mask for 10 days after the last date of exposure, and test negative with an at-home rapid antigen test within 3-5 days after last exposure. Rapid tests can be obtained from your school.If your child recovered from COVID-19 in the last 90 days, they are exempt from testing, but are required to monitor for symptoms and wear a mask for 10 days following exposure.If your child develops any COVID-19 symptoms, test your child immediately or call your healthcare provider and make arrangements for your child to be tested for COVID-19.

No. You can have a vaginal infection and still have a normal pH. This is especially true if you have a yeast infection. If you have symptoms of a vaginal infection of any sort, see a healthcare provider no matter what the test says.
They are practically identical. With that said, a healthcare provider can perform other exams and tests to diagnose and treat any infection (including sexually transmitted infections) more definitively.
The New York State Office of Children and Family Services provides a range of resources to help parents with their child care needs, people who want to start or are currently running child care programs, and anyone with a concern about the health or safety of a child in a day care program.
Public health officials strongly urge anyone who has cold or flu-like symptoms, such as a cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat, headache, or any of the symptoms listed in the screening tool to isolate.
In times of increased community transmission and case numbers, public health officials may implement stricter requirements to reduce the spread of the virus. These additional measures may apply regionally or provincially. This online COVID-19 Screening Tool will provide guidance and direction on any new requirements.
Your health care provider may order a potassium blood test as part of your regular checkup or to monitor an existing condition, such as diabetes, kidney disease, or adrenal gland disorders. You may also need this test if you take medicines that could affect your potassium levels or if you have symptoms of having too much or too little potassium.
A health care professional will take a blood sample from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. You may feel a little sting when the needle goes in or out. This usually takes less than five minutes.
The Department of Children and Families (DCF) offers a range of support services to foster parents and the children they look after.

People experience depression in different ways. It may interfere with your daily work, resulting in lost time and lower productivity. It can also influence relationships and some chronic health conditions.
Due to side effects and safety concerns, MAOIs are not the first choice for treating mental health disorders. They are typically used only if other medications are unsuccessful at treating depression.
Patients may experience tiredness and dissociation (difficulty with attention, judgment, and thinking) after taking the medication. For this reason, esketamine is administered in a healthcare setting where a healthcare professional can monitor for sedation and dissociation.
In cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a therapist will work with you to uncover unhealthy patterns of thought and identify how they may be causing harmful behaviors, reactions, and beliefs about yourself.
Your healthcare professional will place cardiac monitoring pads on your chest and four electrodes on specific areas of your head. They will then deliver short electrical pulses for a few seconds. You will neither convulse nor feel the electrical current and will awaken about 5 to 10 minutes after treatment.
You can also improve symptoms of depression by taking care of yourself. This includes getting plenty of sleep, eating a healthy diet, avoiding negative people, and participating in enjoyable activities.
These essential fats are important to neurological development and brain health. Adding omega-3 supplements to your diet may help reduce depression symptoms. However, there is some conflicting evidence and more research is needed.
Because depression can be linked to other health problems, your healthcare professional may also conduct a physical examination and order blood work. Sometimes thyroid problems or a vitamin D deficiency can trigger symptoms of depression.
If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19 infection, have mild symptoms AND are at high risk of severe disease, contact your health provider. There may be effective treatments available to you.
If possible, choose someone to be the caregiver who is healthy and not at high risk. Caregivers should wash their hands before AND after any interaction with the person with COVID-19 infection. Both the caregiver and the person who is infected shouldwear a medical mask whenever they share a space with each other. If possible, open windows when the caregiver is in the room with the person with COVID-19 infection.
WHO recommends that people with COVID-19 be isolated in a separate room away from other members of the household. However, children should not be isolated on their own. If possible, there should be only one person, who is healthy and not at high risk, in the household providing care to the child with infection. The designated caregiver should take care of the child at all times and monitor their symptoms and safety.
To measure the level of oxygen in the blood, a pulse oximeter is usually placed on the finger or toe of the person who is sick. Using a pulse oximeter is painless and only takes a few minutes. If your healthcare provider recommends the use of a pulse oximeter, be sure to get instructions about how to use it and how to read and understand the results, and report them to your healthcare provider. Accurate measurements and readings from a pulse oximeter are important signs in determining if and when a COVID-19 patient at home may need urgent care at a healthcare facility. As a general rule, a decline below 90%, or a progressive downwards trend, can be an early warning of need for further medical assessment.
