Cover Your Mouth 4-12-20

CDC now recommends you wear a mask in public where you can’t avoid being near people, like in grocery stores, pharmacies & healthcare settings https://bit.ly/2V8o5Y2. Remember though, your local authorities may have already issued a specific order re: masks. #StayHomeTexas

CDC recomienda que use una máscara en público donde no pueda evitar estar cerca de personas, como en supermercados, farmacias y centros de salud https://bit.ly/2V8o5Y2. Es posible que sus autoridades locales ya hayan hecho obligatorio el uso de máscaras. #StayHomeTexas

The virus lives in tiny droplets in the lungs of people w/ COVID-19, even when they don’t show symptoms. We can breathe the same air as anyone within abt. 6 ft. of us. Staying farther apart from people during this time reduces the chance of breathing in the virus. #StayHomeTexas

 

El virus vive en gotas en los pulmones de personas con COVID-19, y a veces no tienen síntomas. Puedes respirar el mismo aire que cualquiera a 6 pies de ti. Mantente más alejado de las personas durante este tiempo para reducir la posibilidad de respirar el virus. #StayHomeTexas

Coughing & sneezing can send tiny infected droplets into the air which can be inhaled by anyone within 6 feet of us. Always cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and immediately wash your hands to lessen the risk of spreading the virus. Be smart. Stay well! #StayHomeTexas

 

Toser y estornudar puede llevar gotas infectadas al aire, que pueden ser inhaladas por personas que estén a 6 pies de ti. Siempre tosa o estornude en pañuelos desechables o en el codo y lávese las manos para disminuir la propagación del virus. ¡Mantente sano! #StayHomeTexas

Parents and Staff:

By staying apart for the time being, La Vega ISD is working to ensure that we are limiting the spread of COVID-19 in our community. In service of this, I want to share a one-minute video that reminds us of the most important actions we can take as individuals to reduce risk for ourselves and others: 

  • Practice social distancing
  • Wash your hands
  • Stay home as much as you can, especially if you have a cough, fever, or shortness of breath

I encourage you to watch this video with your family. And be sure to share it with family and friends on social media and via email.

 Even though we are currently apart, we look forward to coming back together as a community soon.

Best,

Dr. Sharon M. Shields,

Superintendent

People with no symptoms have the potential to unknowingly spread COVID-19! That’s why it’s best for everyone in your family to stay at home and away from others as much as possible until instructed otherwise from state and local officials. #StayHomeTexas

 

¡Las personas sin síntomas tienen el potencial de propagar COVID-19 sin saberlo! Por eso lo mejor para todos en su familia es quedarse en casa y lejos de los demás tanto como sea posible hasta que los funcionarios estatales y locales le indiquen lo contrario. #StayHomeTexas

Hello, this is Dr. Shields, Superintendent, La Vega ISD. Keeping you safe and educated is always our top priority, so we’d like to share some important facts about the coronavirus. Together we can slow the spread just by staying at home! If you must go out, stay at least 6 feet away from others, and disinfect frequently touched surfaces like countertops and doorknobs whenever you return.

Keep germs away by washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. To keep from spreading germs, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth and cover a cough or sneeze with your elbow. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 – a fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath – call your doctor. We hope to see you all very soon!

Texas, remember the importance of social distancing. If you must go out, avoid public spaces and keep your distance from others (at least 6 feet). If we continue to follow valuable public health guidance, fewer of our friends & family will be affected by COVID-19. #StayHomeTexas

 

Texas, recuerda la importancia del distanciamiento social. Evite espacios públicos y manténgase alejado de los demás (al menos 6 pies). Si continuamos siguiendo la guía de salud pública, menos de nuestros amigos y familiares se verán afectados por COVID-19. #StayHomeTexas

COVID19 lives on droplets in the lungs of people with the virus, even if they don’t have symptoms. When infected people breathe, the virus enters the air. If you can’t #StayHome, wear a mask/scarf/bandana, stay 6 feet apart, and wash your hands.  #DontGoViral

 

COVID19 vive de gotas en los pulmones de las personas con el virus incluso si no tienen síntomas.Cuando las personas contagiadas respiran, el virus entra al aire.Si no puedes quedarte en casa #StayHome, use una bufanda/pañuelo, manténgase a 6 pies de distancia y lávese las manos

Common symptoms of COVID19 are fever, dry cough, & shortness of breath. If you have mild symptoms, call your doctor & StayHome. If you develop serious symptoms, such as trouble breathing, pressure in the chest, or bluish lips or face, call your doctor & seek care immediately.
