Best Practices

Please remember that it is also flu season and the following preventative actions should be taken every day to reduce the spread of any respiratory virus:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing “Happy Birthday” twice). If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Remember that handwashing is the strongest way to prevent the spread of disease.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze (use your upper sleeve if a tissue is not available).
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

We also encourage all parents and students to monitor the CDC website as it provides the most up-to-date information: Coronavirus Disease 2019.
