UPDATED 2/20/2020: Sacramento County Public Health – Guidance for Schools on Coronavirus “COVID-19″
The Sacramento County Public Health Department (SCPH) has issued
a revised statement dated 2/20/2020 providing guidance to schools
regarding the “COVID-19” or 2019 Novel Coronavirus
All of the guidance from SCPH remains the same – except there is a new phone number (916) 875-5881. SCPH has also issued a direct letter to families regarding COVID-19 (also attached). While SCUSD has already reached out to families, we will be following up to share this recent letter from Dr. Kasirye, our Public Health Officer.
There have been reports of students and others community members being stigmatized. We urge schools to ensure student and staff privacy and to prevent discrimination. Please share this guidance with your staff to follow the appropriate steps to ensure all our students, families and staff members feel welcomed and safe at school.
Please contact Health Services immediately at (916) 643-9412 with any concerns.
