As of March 12, we informed the families and students who were planning summer trips to Zambia, Costa Rica, New Orleans, Middle School Summer Yukon, and Alaska of their cancellation. In the midst of cancellations at the national scale, this may not be surprising to most, but we understand it is yet another disappointment for our kids who have made plans for these adventures for years. Our Outdoor Trips and Travel team will work on options for future trips for these groups although that may not be possible in all cases. Information at this time for any planning is limited due to the uncertainty within the travel and tourism industries at this time.
The recommended individual and family precautionary measures include:
Hand washing, hand washing, and handwashing with warm, soapy water.
Respiratory etiquette – When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with flexed arm or tissue. Throw tissue into bin immediately after use. Clean hands with hand sanitizer or wash hands thoroughly after.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth;
Clean and disinfect high touch areas such as desks, keyboards, phones, etc.
PLEASE STAY HOME if you, as employees, students, and any other visitors, are sick, especially if you have a fever, showing signs of cough/flu/pneumonia, shortness of breath, sore throat, or other respiratory conditions and could be suspected of being contagious. Please seek appropriate medical attention.
If you are immunocompromised, or in a vulnerable population such as pregnant or elderly, PLEASE STAY HOME to avoid increased exposure to the public due to your condition.
If you have come in contact with or have heightened concern that you have been exposed to this or any other communicable disease, seek appropriate medical attention and stay home.
