Our district continues to monitor the emerging novel coronavirus outbreak. We will work closely with our contacts at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) to stay informed of any developments of confirmed cases in the US and implement any recommendations or guidelines from the CDC or SC DHEC as they are determined.
While this virus has not affected our area at present, DHEC and CDC have great resources available for parents and community members to learn about the virus, symptoms, preventative measures and current confirmed cases.
As always, we encourage everyone to practice proper handwashing, cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and stay home if ill. It is all of us working together that will help decrease the spread of germs.
