EPS working to prevent, prepare for coronavirus
The district is in the prevention stage of managing for a potential outbreak of coronavirus in Minnesota. The most significant things you can do to protect yourself and your family, and to help keep coronavirus from our schools, are the same preventative practices that we promote every year during cold and flu season:
- Wash your hands
- Cover a cough
- Keep your hands away from your face (eyes, nose, mouth)
- Stay home when you are sick
- Keep kids home from school or activities when they are sick
The Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Education collaboratively take the lead on decision regarding school closure or other impact on schools that could result from outbreaks of contagious conditions. EPS will follow any recommendations from MDH and/or MDE regarding the coronavirus or any other contagious condition.
