COVID-19 Testing at PM Pediatrics
Please refer to this previous email for details about mandatory COVID-19 testing for students. A few reminders for those who are getting their children’s COVID-19 tests at PM Pediatrics:
  • Register for PM Pediatrics and have an instantaneous pre-screening via the PM Pediatrics app on August 25-27. You can set up an account at www.pmpanywhere.com or download the app. Please make sure to be screened ahead of time by PM Pediatrics so that you only show up for the COVID-19 test on August 31 or September 1 from 9-11am.
  • Sign up for your COVID-19 test time slot on August 31 or September 1 here. 
  • Print and fill out your HIPAA Waiver prior to arriving for the test. This will give permission to release your COVID-19 testing results directly to the school. 
  • Refer to these instructions on how to setup and access the Patient Portal for test results.
  • Please maintain social distancing when at PM Pediatrics despite your excitement to see other Senesh families. 
Magnus Health App for Daily Health Screenings

For the upcoming school year, we will be using a Magnus Health app as a daily COVID-19 screening platform each morning prior to departure for school. The Magnus Mobile app will allow parents to complete this easily from a smartphone in just a few clicks. This screening process will help us create the safest possible environment for our community. At the completion of the quick survey each morning, you will receive a message for the student’s attendance instruction for that day. As this is a web-based system, you will have continuous access to your child’s health record as well as the ability to make updates when needed. You can also use the app to make updates to any health forms.  We’ve included instructions here for you to review and setup the app on your phone.

On September 8th you will have access to begin completing the Magnus Health COVID-19 Daily Screening for your child(ren). You will access the screening via the button titled “COVID-19.” All parents must submit the screening each morning before school, no later than 7:30am. Timely submission of health information is vital so that preparations can be made prior to the start of each school day. Please reserve 1-2 minutes per child to complete this each morning.

Screening questions will include the following:
  • Have you had a temperature of greater than 100.0°F at any time in the past 14 days? 
  • Do you have any of the below symptoms?
  • Fever greater than 100 degrees F 
  • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills, muscle pain, or headache                                                                             
  • Diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting                                           
  • New loss of taste or smell               
  • Congestion, runny nose, or sore throat    
   
Close Contact/Potential Exposure
  • Have you had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person with confirmed COVID-19?
  • Have you had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person under quarantine for possible exposure to COVID-19?
  • Have you traveled to or lived in an area where the state health department is reporting large numbers of COVID-19 cases within the past 14 days?
