As students and staff prepare for winter break, the District's Health Services team has some tips on steps we can all take to stay healthy through the holidays and winter months.
The flu and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) season hit early here in Columbus and around the country. The current surge in these new viruses, alongside our continued cases of COVID-19, has led to many children and families becoming ill with respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, fever, and even shortness of breath. Here are some tips to keep you and your loved ones healthy during our upcoming holiday season!
As you celebrate, please consider these tips to stay safe and healthy:
As a reminder, if your student has symptoms such as cough, fever, sore throat, headache, congestion, vomiting, or diarrhea, please keep them home and consult with their physician. Staying home when sick lowers the risk of spreading infectious illnesses to others and their school community. In addition, children who come to school with symptoms of COVID-19 may be sent home. The District will continue to follow its current health protocols regarding COVID-19 safety. Important COVID-19 Protocols reminders are found online on the District's Health Hub.
Protect yourselves and others in the days ahead!
