Preventative Measures:

The best strategies to remain safe during this time are common sense hygiene practices. To minimize the spread of respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, according to the IDPH:

  • 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 with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then promptly discard the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If a tissue is unavailable, cough, or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and hard surfaces.

If you personally feel ill or think that you have been exposed to COVID-19, please follow the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

If you have any questions or recommendations, please contact your building principal as needed.
