RE:                 COVID-19

 

On the evening of March 10th, North Central District Health Department (NCDHD) was made aware of the first presumptive positive coronavirus case in our district. The person is a high school student who attends school at Crofton High School in Knox County.

NCDHD has identified the people that are at highest risk associated with the confirmed COVID-19 case. These individuals are in self-quarantine and are not a risk to the public.

At this time, Ewing Public Schools remains at low risk. Potential exposure events that may affect members of your student body include:

If additional risks are identified, NCDHD will release this information publicly and work with those effected.

If you believe you were exposed, contact the NCDHD office at 402-336-2406 and please self-quarantine (stay home and away from others) and follow instructions from public health. We ask that you cooperate with public health in order to limit spread of any further disease.

 

Steps to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent coronavirus:

  1. Stay home when sick.
  2. Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  3. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough, or sneeze then throw the tissue in the trash.
  4. Ensure frequent cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched objects and surfaces.
