Health and Safety Precautions
While public health agencies are taking the novel coronavirus seriously and are carefully monitoring for the virus, health officials currently indicate there is no immediate threat to the general public.  The risk of contracting the virus is low.  As with any virus, especially during the flu season, health officials recommend the following preventive measures to protect your health and the health of others:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
If your student experiences cold-like symptoms, you can help protect others by doing the following:
  • Your student should not attend public activities while sick and avoid close contact with others
    • Students who have a fever of 100.4° Fahrenheit or greater should be kept home until no fever is present for 24 hours, without fever medication
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
Most people with common human coronavirus will recover on their own. If you are concerned about symptoms, however, contact your healthcare provider.
