PA Dept of Health Update - from our Nurses

5/7/20

 

Parents/Guardians,

As a reminder, the Pennsylvania Department of Health offers updates as new information becomes available. We want to provide you with current information regarding the COVID-19 virus in our state. Links to the current information and videos are below. We do remind and encourage all students, families and employees to be vigilant in practicing good hygiene habits daily. The Pennsylvania Department of Health recommends all citizens follow the guidelines below to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Wear a mask in public: “My mask protects you and your mask protects me”.

Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Washing your hands is one of the most important steps you can take in staying healthy.

 Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching your face.

Clean surfaces- clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces – especially when someone is ill.

Practice social distancing
