A temporary detachable doorway screen apparatus for a doorway in a dwelling comprises a flexible sheet of screening material shaped to cover the enclosed area within the open doorway. The flexible sheet is made from a flexible polymeric material which allows the entire screen to be rolled up or unrolled for use. The sheet of screen material is provided as a pair of side-by-side screen sections normally separated from one another and overlapping vertically along a central portion of the screen to form an opening along the overlapped portions of the screen sections. An elongated tension rod secured to the top portion of the screen is adjustable in length and applies spring pressure at its ends to the side of the door frame members for frictionally and releasably holding the tension rod above the doorway. This holds the flexible screen in position to cover the doorway. Spaced apart fastener elements are provided along the overlapping central opening in the screen sections and along the outer vertical marginal edges of the screen.
