COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel virus that has been spreading worldwide. Community-acquired cases have now been confirmed in California. We are gaining more understanding of COVID-19’s epidemiology, clinical course, immunogenicity, and other factors as time progresses, and the situation is changing daily. CDPH is in the process of monitoring COVID-19, conducting testing with local and federal partners, and providing guidance and resources to prevent, detect and respond to the occurrence of COVID-19 cases in California.
We are closely monitoring official news and updates about the Coronavirus. We also want to share what we are doing to help minimize the spread of any type of virus:
In an effort to keep our students healthy, we will continue to excuse all absences due to illness and allow students to make up missed assignments. In an effort to ensure proper diagnosis and any necessary medical care is received promptly, we will continue to encourage families to see a doctor if any member of the family is ill.
As recommended by the Center for Disease Control, as of Monday, 3/9/20 Los Molinos Unified school sites will disinfect classrooms utilizing a disinfectant product know to demonstrate effectiveness against viruses similar to the Coronavirus.
We encourage all students, parents and staff to take everyday preventative actions. Please wash your hands regularly and avoid unnecessary travel to places known to have Coronavirus outbreaks.
