The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) says schools in the Bluegrass State are no longer required to administer routine temperature checks to students.
This eliminates the need for routine temperature checks for students both entering a school bus or a school building, according to KDE.
According to the latest guidelines released by KDE on Wednesday, schools only need to perform temperature checks on students who are showing symptoms of COVID-19, though the guidelines state students should be kept home from school if they're experiencing symptoms of the virus.
If a student is found to have a temperature greater than 100.4, the student should be isolated, according to KDE.
The KDE said Wednesday that its guidance on temperature checks had been updated based on the latest information from the CDC.
