What is the Coronavirus?

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is one of a family of viruses that can cause symptoms like the common cold and/or flu virus.

What do symptoms of Coronavirus look like?

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause mild to severe respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, congestion, fatigue, shortness of breath and fever.

What can Parents do to protect their Family? 

  • Family members need to wash their hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. (Alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 70% alcohol content can work in a pinch, but they’re generally not as effective as soap and water). Hands should be washed before eating, after using the bathroom, and when you come inside from outdoor activities that caused hands to get dirty.
  • Teach children not to touch their mouth, eyes or noses unless they just washed their hands.
  • Cough and/or sneeze into your elbows and not your hands.
  • Distance yourself from anyone coughing or sneezing.
  • Encourage Healthy Habits, like eating a healthy diet, exercising, and getting enough sleep.
  • Do not send students to school when they are sick.
