Please help stop the spread of germs!

We have seen increased cases of respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses at the ECDC. I would like to share some preventive actions from the CDC to help stop the spread of germs:

   Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
   While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
   If you are sick with flu-like illness, it is recommended that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever or gastrointestinal symptoms (vomiting or diarrhea) are gone. (Your fever should be gone for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
   Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
   Wash your hands often with soap and water. Especially before eating, after using the bathroom or changing diapers, after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
   Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
   Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.

The staff at the ECDC encourages and assists the children, if needed, with the above germ prevention precautions.

In addition, although we follow strict cleaning protocols, we have arranged for ECDC to be fully sanitized this evening as an additional layer of precaution for our students.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out for additional guidance or support

Thank you!
