Coronavirus - March 12, 2020

Coronavirus or COVID-19; March 12, 2020

The Texas Department of State Health Services is tracking cases of the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. La Vefga ISD will monitor the DSHS and continue to update the staff, students, parents and community on changes to the Bellmead area. 

 

As of March 12th at 10:00 AM, there were NO reported cases in McLennan County of the COVID-19 virus. The district is asking parents to assist in the gathering of data to make informed decisions concerning the school activities at the conclusion of Spring Break.  Families are asked to self-report travel and contact with infected individuals. 

 

Family Self-Report

We will use this information to contact you if information affecting your return to campus is impacted.

 

 

There are simple steps everyone can take to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses like COVID-19:

 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Minimizing exposure is especially important for people who are 65 or older or who have an underlying health condition like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or cancer. People in those groups have a higher risk of developing severe disease if they do get COVID-19, and the safest thing for them during an outbreak will be to stay home as much as possible and minimize close contact with other people. To get ready, they should talk to their doctor about getting additional prescription medications and have enough household items and groceries on hand to stay home as needed.
