As you may know, flu season activity is higher than normal this year, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
recently provided updates regarding COVID-19.
This is a good time to review preventative measures we can all take to stop the spread of respiratory viruses. It is recommended that you conduct frequent hand washing, avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay home when you are sick. A reminder that students with a fever should stay home until they are fever-free for 24-hours without taking any fever reducing medications. Students also need to be free of respiratory symptoms.
