COVID-19

Parents need to be attentive to the daily health of their children and are expected to make a commitment to ensure their child is symptom free and safe to attend school each day. This includes being fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.

Students and staff members should not attend school if:

  • they have Covid-19 symptoms

  • a household member has tested positive

  • they have been in close contact with a positive case

  • someone in the household is being tested

Franklin County Public Health recommends that individuals receive the flu vaccination and engage every day in measures to prevent the spread of germs and avoid illness, such as:

  • ​Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

The CDC recommends postponing travel and staying home as the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.  Review these CDC travel protocols if you have recently spent time outside of central Ohio.
