Respiratory Viruses: What Can We Do To Prevent Them?
You might have seen in the news that there is currently a respiratory
virus, Enterovirus, causing hospitalizations among some children . While
many who contract the illness will suffer only mild cold-like symptoms,
it is affecting some children more severely.
The Winston County School District health services team asked the Winston County Health Department whether there is anything special we should be doing to help prevent this virus in our district’s schools.
The Health Department said, while there is currently no vaccination to prevent the Enterovirus, there are other prevention techniques we can use.
Please help us control this virus in our School. Join us in practicing these basic preventative measures and encouraging your children to do the same:
• Use good, frequent hand-washing with soap and water.
• Avoid close contact with others who are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick with a fever.
• Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Together, let’s team up to do what we can to protect our children from this and other viruses headed our way this fall and winter. Thank you!
