Health Update: COVID- 19 (Novel Coronavirus)

 

COVID- 19 (Novel Coronavirus) Update- February 28, 2020

Dear Walnut Valley Families, 

Recent national news coverage concerning the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), has sparked conversations and questions from our community in regards to the health and safety of our students and staff, and we would like to share the following information with you. 

The Walnut Valley Unified School District (WVUSD) continues to work closely with and obtain guidance from local, state, and federal public health agencies to monitor the latest updates regarding the COVID-19 and ensure the wellbeing of students and staff.

Most recent updates from the Los Angeles County Office of Education and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health state:

·    Los Angeles County has only had one case of novel coronavirus in a traveler from Wuhan City, China, last month.  The traveler has since been cleared from the virus and is no longer under quarantine.

·    At this time, there are no plans for imminent school closures. 

At this time, the health risk of the COVID-19 to the general public in California remains low, but we continue to encourage common-sense precautions to prevent the spread of all infectious diseases:

  • Wash your hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze, or cough into your sleeve or arm.
  • Keep students home if they are ill.
  • Do not send your child to school if your child has a temperature of 100°F or higher. Students must be fever-free for 24 hours without having taken fever-reducing medication (i.e., Advil, Tylenol, Motrin, etc.)

FOR RETURNING TRAVELERS FROM CHINA

While health agencies may issue mandatory quarantines of individuals, WVUSD does not have the authority or responsibility to mandate or enforce the quarantining of our students. WVUSD’s mission is to educate students, which includes sharing accurate information regarding the COVID-19 and sharing regular updates from health agency experts.

Consistent with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidance on returning travelers from China, local health departments are communicating with travelers returning from mainland China to provide guidance about limiting public interactions for 14 days.

Travelers from mainland China arriving in the United States since February 3, 2020, should practice “social distancing” (staying home away from public places including school) for 14 days, beginning the day after they left China.

Please contact your school’s principal regarding your child’s circumstances relating to recent travel from mainland China or other affected countries.

CDC guidance on returning travelers is available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/risk-assessment.html 

WVUSD respects the confidentiality of our students and will never share personal information of students with the public. Students who recently returned from China and are practicing social distancing will receive support from our schools and WVUSD to facilitate continued learning at home.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

We understand that this unprecedented situation may be stressful, but we encourage sensitivity in actions and words to avoid marginalization of students and segments of our community. Thank you for your partnership in helping to ensure that our students remain healthy and continue to learn in a safe and welcoming environment.

COVID- 19(新型冠状病毒)更新资讯-2020年2月28日

敬爱的核桃谷家庭们, 

 

最近有关COVID-19(新型冠状病毒)的全国新闻报道引发了我们社区对学生和教职员健康与安全的对话和担忧,我们希望在此与您分享以下信息。

 

核桃谷联合学区(WVUSD)一直以来与地方,州和联邦的公共卫生机构密切合作,遵循其决策,并注意有关COVID-19的最新更新资讯以确保学生和教职员的健康。

 

洛杉矶县教育局和公共卫生部的最新更新资讯:

 

·      在洛杉矶县,目前只有过一确诊病例,是上個月來自中國武漢市的旅行者,但此旅行者已經痊愈,也不再受到隔離。

 

·      目前,尚无迫切需关闭学校的计划。

 

目前,COVID-19对加州公众的健康风险仍然很低,但是我们还是鼓励采取一般性的预防措施,以防止所有传染病的传播:

 

 

·      常洗手

·      咳嗽或打喷嚏时要掩盖口鼻

·      如果没有纸巾,打喷嚏或咳嗽时应用袖子或手臂遮挡

·      小孩生病时,将他们留在家中,不要到学校

·      如果孩子的温度为华氏100°F或更高,请勿将其送到学校。 学生必须在未服用退烧药物(即Advil,Tylenol,Motrin等)24小时内不再发烧,才能到校上课。

 

 

從中國返回美國的旅客

 

儘管衛生機構可能會作個人強制性的隔離,但WVUSD沒有被授權或執行隔離我們學生的權力或責任。 WVUSD的使命是教育學生,包括分享有關COVID-19的準確讯息以及衛生機構專家的定期更新资讯。

 

關於從中國返回美國的旅行者,  在保持与疾病控制中心(CDC)指南一致性下,地方衛生部門與返美的中國大陆旅行者進行溝通,提供有關限制外出互動14天的决策。自2020年2月3日起,來自中國大陸的旅行者應在離開中國的第二天開始進行14天的 "疏离社区"(留在家裡;遠離學校等公共場所)。

 

有关您的孩子最近從中國大陸或其他感染国家返美的旅行相關情況,请與學校校長聯繫。

 

關於返美旅客的指南,可上访CDC互聯網:

 https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/risk-assessment.html 

 

 

WVUSD尊重我們學生的隱私,絕不會与公眾 分享學生個人訊息。最近從中國返回美國,並参与 "疏离社区"的學生將獲得我們學校和WVUSD学区的支持,以方便學生在家中繼續學習。

 

附加信息

 

我们知道,这前所未有的情况会有压力感,但是我们鼓励在行动和言语上保持尊重,以避免学生和社区中的某些群体被边缘化。 感谢您与我们合作一起帮助确保学生的健康,让他们能在安全和友好的环境中继续学习。
