Dear Chattooga County Families,

 

We know there is a concern with the impact of the coronavirus on our school community.  Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our students and staff.

 

As of March 3, 2020, two confirmed cases have been reported in Fulton County, Georgia.  We will continue to monitor the situation and will take actions as necessary.  

 

Chattooga County Schools continuously receives updates and guidance on signs and symptoms of the coronavirus.  Our school system is closely working with the Chattooga County Health Department and school nurses, and will be monitoring information that is being released from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

 

There are preventative measures you can take that are recommended by the medical community. These measures are the same as those for the flu.

Wash hands frequently
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Stay home if you are sick and running a fever
Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use tissue to cover the cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash

Chattooga County Schools will update school websites, social media and local news stations if any information becomes available.

 

There is up-to-date information on the coronavirus on the Georgia Department of Public Health  website  https://dph.georgia.gov/ or the Center for Disease Control website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
