Prevention Measures

Exposure to COVID-19 can occur from any person-to-person contact and is not limited to a particular race or ethnicity. For now, the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family is to follow the standard preventive practices for influenza. In particular:
 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Heavily soiled hands should be washed.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Practice social distancing and stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not in your immediate household. 
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and we will remain vigilant in our efforts to help prevent the spread of this illness.
