Staying Healthy During COVID-19
We encourage all students, parents/guardians, and staff to follow standard health protocols and hygiene best practices to prevent the spread of all infectious diseases:
- 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.
- 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 cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
- Get vaccinated every year.
The California Department of Public Health does recommend the use of face masks for general prevention and frequent handwashing as a protection from infectious diseases.
