Inova Alexandria Hospital has partnered with Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) to help keep local schools healthy by providing more than 800 digital thermometers free of charge to school nurses to distribute to our families in need.

School nurses send students home who are ill with a fever with instructions to parents not to have the child return to school until they are fever-free for 24 hours.
