It’s Time to Spring Ahead!

With the news of the first presumptive positive case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Wake County announced earlier this week, we want to provide you an update about the measures we are taking under the guidance of the NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Students or Staff Who May Have Been Exposed
If a student or staff member has not been contacted by Wake County Public Health Division and they are not showing symptoms, they do not need to isolate themselves or take any precautions beyond washing their hands, covering their cough, and staying home if they feel sick.
If someone believes they may have been exposed to COVID-19 and they are experiencing symptoms, they should call their healthcare provider.
State and federal law prohibits the school system from sharing confidential information about students and employees. While we understand that parents may have concerns, they do not have the legal right to know information about a student or staff member’s country of origin, health status, places traveled or family members.
Precautions to Prevent the Spread of Germs
County and State health officials have assured us that we should maintain our regular, routine cleaning procedures in our schools. They've stressed to us that we should approach the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the same as influenza.
The CDC has issued travel health notices for countries with COVID-19 transmission. North Carolinians should be aware of the CDC’s latest geographic risk assessment for COVID-19 transmission before traveling and should avoid nonessential travel to areas under a travel health warning.
If you have further questions or concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), you can view the following websites:
