Coronavirus Informationhttp://bdh.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/936Coronavirus Information<p>​</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14pt;">We are all familiar with news broadcasts that continue to emphasize the coronavirus and its growing impact on our lives. We want to ask everyone to take part in sensible practices to keep ourselves and others safe. Please note, these are practices that are important during all cold and flu seasons and are encouraged by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit. We have provided the following important reminders to staff and students:</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14pt;">First, hands should be washed frequently with soap and water during the day. This includes after using the toilet, before eating, after blowing the nose, and before preparing food. Handwashing should be done with plenty of soap and water and last for the duration of the happy birthday song being sung twice. </span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14pt;">As well, try not to touch your face. If you sneeze, do so into a tissue or sleeve elbow, not your hand. It is important to not share items that go in your hand or mouth. We strongly discourage shaking hands and high fiving at this time.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14pt;">In addition, we have asked that students not socialize and gather in large groups in the foyer between classes, at lunch, and after school. Health officials recommend what is known as “social distancing”, which means trying to stand a metre or so apart from each other. Students should figure out their break time plans and go to where they need to go. </span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14pt;">Lastly, parents recently received an email from the board and the health unit, providing information about the coronavirus and measures for protecting one’s self from it. </span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14pt;">Thank you for your cooperation, and please refer to the school and board websites for updates. </span></p>
