Health Practices

Basic Prevention of Virus Spread

 
  1. Make sure all family members are up-to-date with their flu shots.
  2. Promote basic hygiene:
    • Any coughing or sneezing should be directed into ones sleeve (inside elbow), rather than into hands or the air. 
    • Wash hands after using and handling used tissues, after blowing nose, before/after eating, and after toilet use.
    • Wash for 20 seconds with soap, rub between fingers and under nails; and then rinse and dry. (May use alcohol (60%+) hand gel if sinks are not readily available.)
    • Schools should encourage hand washing (by students and staff) through education, scheduled time for handwashing, and the provision of adequate supplies
    • Avoid rubbing your own eyes, nose and mouth.
    • Do not share utensils, cups etc.
    • Stay home when sick.
    • Avoid contact with those who are sick.
  3. Wearing of face masks by students and staff members: Wearing of masks in public is not recommended for Americans by the CDC nor by our local public health department. It will be discouraged in schools. Hand washing is considered the best protection from infectious diseases.
