Reminder about Social Distancing
The CDC and public health officials are continuing to share guidance for the general public to practice “social distancing,” which they have described as “all individuals should limit community movement and adapt to disruptions in routine activities.” The CDC also says, “social distancing means remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible.”
Sheltering Arms is taking precautionary steps to minimize risk to our students and staff. As with other cases of reported contagious illness within the community, Sheltering Arms is closely following the guidance and recommendations of the Georgia Department of Public Health (for U.S. Childcare Programs and K-12 Schools), District Health Department, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the local Emergency Management Agency (EMA).
If anyone in our centers exhibits known symptoms AND they have traveled to a known country/area impacted by the Coronovirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the past two weeks (i.e. China), we strongly urge the individual and his/her family to seek medical attention from a healthcare provider right away and remain away from the center until cleared by the healthcare provider.
Sheltering Arms’ leaders will maintain contact with local EMA authorities, local public health, and district public health authorities, and will respond promptly to any directions and protocols they may provide as it pertains to Coronavirus Disease 2019.
