Updates for COVID-19
Posted 12/14/20

In the midst of the holiday season, please remember to keep practicing COVID-19 safe behaviors. Maintaining social distancing, proper hand washing, and mask wearing can help slow the spread of COVID-19. Also, be sure to not attend any social gatherings if you are feeling sick in any way. The CDC has recommendations for the celebration of the holidays that can be a guide for your decision making. Behaviors that promote overall good health can be very beneficial in helping to maintain your health during the pandemic. For example, by eating a well-balanced diet, fitting in daily exercise, drinking plenty of water, and getting an adequate amount of sleep, you can help your body's immune system be boosted. Whatever you decide to do for your holiday celebrations, be sure to clean and disinfect your surroundings, especially frequently touched surfaces. See the attached flyers for COVID-19 testing details and the CDC's holiday suggestions. 

 

The trucks that are transporting the initial doses of the COVID-19 vaccine left yesterday. What a momentous occasion! Currently the vaccine is not set to be given to the general public just yet. When the vaccine does become available to students and their families, we will be certain to tell you the specifics. An interesting video that discusses the vaccine can be found at https://www.cnbc.com/video/2020/11/10/how-the-various-covid-19-vaccines-work.html

 

Have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and be safe!
