Prevention:


The CDC recommends the following general precautions we can all take to remain as healthy as possible, including:

Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.

  • When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. You can also cough or sneeze into your sleeve. Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid sharing drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, dishes, towels, or other items. Wash these items thoroughly with soap and water after use.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick whenever possible
  • Practice other good health habits – clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work, or school, especially if someone is ill; get plenty of sleep; be physically active; manage your stress; drink plenty of fluids; and eat nutritious food.
  • Keep children home from school when they are ill. If your student has any of the following symptoms, please keep them home from school: temperature greater than 100, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, any rash not yet diagnosed by a physician, red or pink itchy eye and/or drainage from eye, and any contagious illness such as chicken pox, strep throat or flu. For additional guidance on when to keep your student home, please contact your school nurse.
