The most important thing students, staff and families can do now to help stop the spread of germs is continue to follow everyday preventive actions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Onslow County Health Department (OCHD):
- Practice good hygiene.
- Wash hands regularly.
- Stay away from those who are sick, and stay home if you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue.
Due to the rapidly evolving nature of this virus, the CDC is the most credible public health site and resource for the community. Please check out the links below for the latest public health information on COVID-19 from the CDC and the OCHD.
