GEER PARK COMMUNITY notification letter 3/18/21

DATE: March 18, 2021

TO: Geer Park Elementary Staff and Families

FROM: Jamel Lawera, Principal

RE: COVID-19 Case Identification in Group B

A confirmed case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been identified at school. We are working closely with Wayne County Health Department to identify exposures and prevent further cases. This letter is informational only; no further action is required for you at this time.  If you have not been contacted by the district nurse or your building administrator, you are not considered to be a close-contact to the positive individual.

I want to thank all staff and students for following through social distancing measures and adhering to all other guidelines, like wearing masks at all times and not being in close contact with anyone for 15 minutes or more. I want to also remind all staff and students that we need to respect everyone’s privacy at all times. Your safety and privacy are important to us. Again, we thank all of you for adhering to all guidelines. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are less than six feet from each other for at least 15 minutes. A person who is a close contact of someone who is infected with COVID-19 may experience COVID-19 symptoms typically within two to fourteen days after a person is exposed. 

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. Symptoms can include: Fever (>100.4oF), cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. 

There are many things that can be done to keep our schools, homes, and communities “COVID-19 free” and protect ourselves and loved ones: 

  1. Children and adults should stay home when ill. 
  2. Washing hands often with soap and running warm water for at least 20 seconds. 
  3. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes must contain at least 60% alcohol. Dispose of wipes in the trash after use. 
  4. Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette (cover a cough with elbow versus hand). 
  5. Follow guidance for wearing a face covering and social distancing. 

If you have questions, please contact Wayne County Health Department at 734-727-7078. 

Following the guidance of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, the school has been disinfected. This includes spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas as needed with a sanitizer, along with other methods of disinfection.

Additional information can be found on the CDC website.

بخصوص: وجود حالة إصابة بكوفيد – ١٩ 

تم تحديد حالة إصابة مؤكدة بفيروس كورونا (كوفيد -١٩ ) في المدرسة. نحن نعمل بشكل وثيق مع إدارة الصحة بمقاطعة وين لتحديد من كانوا في تماس مباشر مع الحالة المؤكدة ومنع وقوع إصابات جديدة. إن الغرض من هذه الرسالة هو الإخطار فقط ؛ لا يلزم اتخاذ أي إجراء آخر  من قبلكم في هذا الوقت. إذا لم يتم الاتصال بك من قبل ممرضة القطاع أو مسؤول المبنى الخاص بك ، فلا تعتبروا ممن كانوا على اتصال وثيق بالشخص المصاب.

أود أن أشكر جميع الموظفين والطلاب لاتباعهم تدابير التباعد الاجتماعي والالتزام بجميع الإرشادات الأخرى ، مثل ارتداء الأقنعة في جميع الأوقات وعدم الاتصال الوثيق بأي شخص لمدة 15 دقيقة أو أكثر. أريد أيضًا أن أذكر جميع الموظفين والطلاب أننا بحاجة إلى احترام خصوصية الجميع في جميع الأوقات. سلامتكم و خصوصيتكم مهمة بالنسبة لنا. مرة أخرى ، نشكركم جميعًا على التزامكم بجميع الإرشادات.

يُعتقد أن الفيروس المسبب لـ كوفيد -١٩  ينتشر بشكل أساسي من شخص لآخر ، من خلال الرذاذ التنفسي الذي ينتج عندما يسعل الشخص المصاب أو يعطس أو يتحدث. يمكن أن تهبط هذه القطرات في أفواه أو أنوف الأشخاص القريبين أو ربما يتم استنشاقها في الرئتين. تزداد احتمالية انتشار المرض عندما يتواجد الأشخاص على مسافة تقل عن ستة أقدام من بعضهم البعض لمدة ١٥  دقيقة على الأقل. قد يعاني الشخص الذي يكون على اتصال وثيق بشخص مصاب بـ كوفيد -19 من أعراض الفيروس عادةً في فترة تتراوح بين  يومين إلى أربعة عشر يومًا من يوم التعرض.

تتشابه أعراض كوفيد -١٩  عند الأطفال والبالغين. يمكن أن تشمل الأعراض: الحمى (حرارة أعلى من ٤. ١٠٠  درجة فهرنهايت) ، والسعال ، وضيق التنفس ، والغثيان ، والقيء ، والإسهال ، وسيلان أو احتقان الأنف ، وفقدان حاسة التذوق أو الشم ، وآلام في البطن.

هناك العديد من الأشياء التي يمكن القيام بها للحفاظ على مدارسنا و منازلنا ومجتمعاتنا وحماية أنفسنا وأحبائنا “خالية من كوفيد -١٩ “:

  • يجب على الأطفال والبالغين البقاء في المنزل عند المرض.
  • غسل اليدين بالصابون والماء الدافئ الجاري لمدة 20 ثانية على الأقل بشكل دائم.
  • في حالة عدم توفر مكان لغسيل الأيدي ، استخدم معقم اليدين بشكل صحيح. يجب أن تحتوي المواد الهلامية والمطهر ومناديل اليدين على نسبة  ٦٠ ٪ على الأقل من الكحول. تخلص من المناديل المبللة في سلة المهملات بعد الاستخدام.
  • تدرب على آداب التنفس الجيدة (قم بالسعال بالكوع من الجهة الداخلية).
  • اتبع الإرشادات الخاصة بارتداء غطاء الوجه والتباعد الاجتماعي.

للاسئلة، الرجاء الاتصال بمديرية الصحة بمقاطعة وين على الرقم:  ٧٠٧٨ – ٧٢٧ ( ٧٣٤) .

اتباعاً لإرشادات خارطة طريق إعادة فتح المدارس بشكل آمن التي قررتها ولاية ميشغان سابقاَُ، تم تطهيرو تعقيم المدرسة. تضمن ذلك رش الفصول الدراسية والممرات وغرف تبديل الملابس والأماكن المشتركة الاستخدام حسب الحاجة بالمطهرات ، إلى جانب تطبيق طرق أخرى للتعقيم.
