COVID-19 Health Information

  • This is a rapidly-changing situation. Please check this site and the CDC Novel Coronavirus webpage in the right column below for frequent updates on the virus.

     

  • Symptoms

    Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough or shortness of breath AND exposure to anyone who has a positive case of COVID-19. This is an important distinction, as there are currently several respiratory viruses in our community, including influenza, that produce similar symptoms.


    If you or a family member begin showing any of these symptoms and suspect it may be COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider. Before going to your healthcare provider’s office, inform them that a case of COVID-19 is suspected, and follow their advice. 
    Gates Chili CSD will continue to work with the local health department to take appropriate steps as advised.

  • There are a number of steps you and your children can take to reduce the spread of illness, including COVID-19, according to the State Department of Health:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with at least 60% alcohol. Heavily-soiled hands should be washed.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
