What can my student and I do to stop the spread of COVID-19?

  • Keep children who are sick at home. Don’t send them to school. 
  • Teach your children to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Be sure to set a good example by doing this yourself. 
  • Teach your children to cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. Be sure to set a good example by doing this yourself. 
  • Teach your children to stay at least three feet away from people who are sick.
  • People who are sick should stay home from work or school and stay away from other people until they are better. 


What should I do if my child exhibits symptoms? 

Contact your doctor, a local public health clinic, or the local board of health. The Georgia Department of Public health is currently advising that individuals who have traveled from affected countries/areas in the past 14 days and have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing should seek medical care, and should contact their healthcare provider and inform them of their travel history before going in.
