Understanding the Coronavirus:
The Coronavirus, referred to as COVID-2019, is a contagious illness that originated in Wuhan City, China, and is currently affecting a growing number of people in multiple countries worldwide. While health officials believe that the risk to the general American public remains low, the facts about the illness change daily and Warrensville Heights City School District is committed to keeping families informed.
Common symptoms of COVID-2019 include fever, shortness of breath, and cough. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
believes that, like the flu, COVID-19 is most often spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. There have been reports that COVID-2019 can be spread from an infected person even if that person has no symptoms.What Warrensville Heights City School District is Doing:
WHCSD is working diligently to ensure our schools are safe through active infection prevention and control.
