Covid19_Update2-2

Much is being learned about this newly emerged disease. COVID-19 is believed to be spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes, much in the way the flu and other respiratory viruses are spread.  As always, we encourage you to follow routine healthy habits to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, such as:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

As recommended by the Harris County Public Health Department, we continue environmental cleaning such as disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at our campuses.  Klein ISD uses hospital-grade cleaning equipment and solutions to help ensure that our campuses and buildings stay disinfected. We are prepared to escalate such practices if recommended by the Harris County Public Health Department.

In situations like these, rumors may cause unnecessary reactions and panic. Therefore, we encourage you to get information from credible sources. The Harris County Public Health Department established a webpage with updates, key messages, frequently asked questions, travel advisories, rumor control, and more at publichealth.harriscountytx.gov.Should you have specific questions about COVID-19 for Klein ISD, please use the contact form located at kleinisd.net/COVID19.
