The use of masks on district property is recommended.
Employees and visitors should self-screen before going to a district site by checking their temperature and determining if they have any of the following new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19:
- Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
- Chills/repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle or body aches
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Loss of taste or smell
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fever ≥100.4 or feeling feverish
- Known close contact with a person who has COVID-19
Employees running a fever of 100.4°F or higher, or feeling ill, should stay at home and will not be permitted to report to work. Make sure to contact your health provider, if needed, and notify your supervisor regarding your absence. Visitors with COVID-19 symptoms will be directed to a designated area where they will be given contact information to one of the district’s Health Services representatives for further instructions.
The district will continue recommending responsible distancing protocols within buildings. Responsible distancing markers may be placed on the floors. Responsible distancing means keeping a minimum of three feet with a preferred distance of up to six feet.
Avoid person-to-person contact, such as shaking hands. The CDC strongly advises against handshakes during the coronavirus pandemic.
Handwashing and Hand Sanitizers
To prevent the spread of germs, including COVID-19, the CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds whenever possible because it reduces the amount of many types of germs and chemicals on hands.
If soap and water are not readily available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Properly apply alcohol-based sanitizer by rubbing the gel over all surfaces of your hands and fingers until your hands are dry.
