Corona Virus update from the Dept of Ed (March 10)

Good day 101 Families:

Please see this link for the latest information form the Dept of Education regarding CoVid/Corona

Please see this link for a Corona Virus Fact Sheet

All three documents and translations are available on the InfoHub Coronavirus Letters page. You can also visit the family site where it is fully accessible and translated.

The key here is to recognize the symptoms and see a doctor immediately if you or someone you’ve been in contact with is showing symptoms which include fever, cough or shortness of breath. 

Prevention

As of March 2020, the Health Department recommends the following precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19:

  • Stay home if you are sick. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing — do not use your hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Do not touch your face with unwashed hands.
  • Do not shake hands. Instead, wave or elbow bump.
  • If you have family or friends who are elderly, have compromised immune systems or chronic respiratory or coronary issues, do not visit them if you feel sick. Stay home and keep your loved ones safe.
  • Consider telecommuting, biking or walking to work if possible.
  • Consider staggering working hours. For example, instead of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., change some work hours to 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or disinfecting wipes.
  • Get your flu shot. Although the flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19, it will help prevent the flu which has similar symptoms to this coronavirus.

It is important you pay attention to the facts that are available.

Have a great day!
