As we continue to make our way through the cold and flu season and now face the uncertainty of Covid-19, it is good to remember four basic measures to stay healthy:
- Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Good handwashing requires soap and water, lasts at least 20 seconds, and covers every surface of your hands.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Not into your hand. Not into the air.
- Keep your hands away from your face. Germs enter through your mouth, nose, and eyes.
- Stay home if you have symptoms of illness. Students should not return to school after illness until they are fever-free for 24 hours without medication. This will be strictly enforced by our nurses.
