The Colonial School District is sharing advice from the Delaware Division of Public Health about how to prevent the spread of germs at a time when risks are at a nationwide high. Students and staff should do the following:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw it in the trash. Without a tissue, cough or sneeze in the bend of your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Clean and disinfect touched surfaces and objects
  • Stay home when feeling sick, except to get medical care
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Tell small children to recite their ABC’s before completing handwashing.
