Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Covid-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization.
• Aches and pains
• Sore throat
• Loss of taste or smell
• Rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Chest pain or pressure
• Loss of speech or movement
The term “social distancing” refers to measures being taken to restrict where and when people can gather in order to stop or slow the spread of infectious disease. In general, 6 feet of separationis the distance that should be kept between people interacting within the school campus. This recommendation is most important in the setting of a large gathering where there is intermingling of people whose symptom status may be hard to monitor.
• Adapt practices to allow physical distancing of at least 6 feet whenever possible. Avoid hand- shake and sharing food and water at recess.
• Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
• Avoid touching eyes,
nose and mouth. Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes,
nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and infect you.
• Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately and wash your hands.
• Do not place your mouth on the spout of the fountain or allow your water bottle to come into contact with the nozzle when refilling.
• Students having mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should manage their symptoms at home or refrain themselves from coming to school or any
