Recent media reports on the coronavirus in the United States have raised questions and caused concern. I want to assure you that Seguin ISD is actively monitoring this situation through proven and trustworthy sources: the Region 8 health departments, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These health officials believe the risk to our school community is low at this time.
Updated information from the CDC on coronavirus in the United States can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html(opens external link in new window). The most recent information about coronavirus in Texas may be found at: https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/(opens external link in new window).
Based on the current information, health officials are recommending that local communities and schools take the same steps to protect against coronavirus as we take to prevent the spread of everyday illnesses like the common cold or the flu:
• 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 mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Our teachers, school nurses, and staff are working carefully to encourage the simple preventative measures listed above. This is important not just to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, but to help prevent the spread of other infections that can lead to student illness and absences.
Thank you for your continued support of Seguin ISD.
