    MDH Preventative Measures
    While a new type of illness can be scary, we can protect our students, staff and the broader community by using simple everyday actions that protect people from other types of respiratory or flu-like illnesses.

    • Stay home when sick with cold/flu-like symptoms (such as fever, cough, shortness of breath).
    • Cover a cough. Cough or sneeze into an elbow or use a tissue and place immediately in the trash.
    • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

    If students become ill at school, parents will be called and expected to pick up their child without delay. This is critically important to prevent or contain the spread of illness.
