Hello Miami Yoder Students and Parents,
At this time of uncertainty regarding the Coronavirus – COVID-19, we believe it is important to provide information for you and your students. The Novel Coronavirus is a virus which can affect the respiratory system and spread similarly to cold viruses.
Steps to prevent spread:
- Prevent the spread of germs by covering coughs and sneezes
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. Use alcohol based hand sanitizer if soap is not available.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. If you use a tissue, throw it in the trash.
- Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched items and surfaces.
- Stay home if you are sick and avoid sick people
- For more information, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) FAQ on Coronavirus website.
