PDH Puts Screenings, Exams, Counts, and SHARRS on Hold (March 24, 2020)

On March 24, 2020, Colleen Schultz, PDH Chief of the Division of School Health, sent out a PennLink email stating that the Division of School Health has been receiving many questions regarding the collection of the chronic disease counts, obtaining exams, screenings, etc. Due to the unforeseen circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not the expectation of the Division of School Health for nurses to collect the chronic disease count information nor concern themselves with obtaining exams, screenings, etc. at this time. Information will be sent out at a later date concerning the SHARRS report, etc. Instead, it is PDH’s utmost concern that all stay healthy during this time.
