Coronavirus - Update March 10

Staff, parents and guardians – 

The impact of the coronavirus is constantly evolving. We will send out messages twice a week, most likely on Sundays and Thursdays, or as needed. They will be shared via email, the district web site and the Hudson School District Facebook page. []

We have created this summary page, where you can find the most up-to-date information as well as previous communication.

An Update from the NH Division of Public Health Services
As of March 4, 2020, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced asymptomatic travelers from countries with a Level 3* travel advisory are to be advised to stay home and monitor their health for 14 days after returning to the United States. Travelers from countries with a Level 2 travel advisory are to be advised to monitor their health and limit interactions at large gatherings with others for 14 days after returning to the United States. 

Household members such as family members, including children, of quarantined individuals are not required to quarantine. As long as they remain asymptomatic, they can leave the home and can go to public places like school and work. If the person being quarantined develops illness, household members must then also stay home on quarantine.

*Level 3 countries: Currently China, Italy, Iran, South Korea – stay home for 14 days and follow the CDC guidelines:

General Precautions for Everyone to Follow
Preventative measures can slow down and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The following precautions are recommended to help prevent the spread of all respiratory illnesses:
*Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and to avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
*Stay home and avoid public places when sick (i.e., social distancing)
*Avoid shaking hands at social events
*Cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash or cough or sneeze into an elbow
*Routine surface cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and objects such as tables, door knobs, toys, desks and computer keyboards with regular household cleaning sprays or wipes

With more people testing positive, we expect that at some point we will have someone in our school community test positive for the coronavirus. At this time, we are not aware of anyone having contact with a person that’s been diagnosed with COVID-19. We will keep you posted as the situation evolves.
