Response to the Coronavirus -  COVID 19

Dear Parents,

 

As you know, NWS takes the health and safety of our students and staff very seriously. To help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus infection, we request you and your children follow these general principles:

 

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.

  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please consult your physician.

  • Avoid going to crowded places or assemblies of any kind.

  • Avoid shaking hands and sharing food.

 

These are the symptoms to look out for:

  • Cough

  • Difficulty in breathing

  • Fever, a temperature of 38 degrees C (100.4F) or higher

 

If anyone at home has flu like symptoms, please keep the child at home and refrain from sending him/her to School.

Additionally, parents are requested that in case you or any member of your family has recently travelled abroad, you need to isolate your child for a minimum period of one week. Ensure that you submit, to the school authorities, a letter from your physician at the end of that week, before the student re-joins the School.

 

We would also like to share this advisory link issued by The World Health Organisation.
