    nurse UPDATED News from the Nurse

    Students and Families,

    As you are very aware over the past few weeks, many things have changed within our community.  Not only are we having school at home, but we are limited to where we can go and who we can see.  All of this has been extremely challenging for most people; however, it is the only way we currently have to keep our families and communities healthy as we battle COVID-19.

    Experts around the world are working to learn more about this new virus and develop medications for treatment.  Currently, there is NO medication to prevent or cure COVID-19.  This is why we have resorted to lifestyle changes.  These changes can help slow the spread of the virus within our community.   By slowing the spread of this virus, this allows experts around the world more time to learn about COVID-19, and it reduces the chance of our hospitals being bombarded with sick patients.  If we can slow the spread of the virus, then hopefully patients can receive the care they need from the hospitals as they get sick.

    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has made recommendations that we all can do within our community to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains 60% alcohol. https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
    • Avoid Close Contact with Others. Stay home as much as possible.  If you have to go out, make sure you maintain a minimum of 6 feet from others.  It has been shown that people can spread the disease even without symptoms. 
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. Everyone should wear a cloth face covering when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities (Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance).  The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.  Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.  Go to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html  for instructions on how to make a face cover at home.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes. Remember to use a tissue or your elbow to cover your coughs and sneezes. Always wash your hands afterwards and throw the tissue away.
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.  Go to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cleaning-disinfection.html  for a complete guide on how to disinfect.

    Remember that we are a part of the same community, and we are all working together to make it the best it can be and safe for each other.  We are all in this together! 

    If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to reach out.  Take care of yourselves and your families.

    Most Sincerely,

    Katherine Owens BSN, RN
