From:  Principal R. Reid    

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

This letter is to inform you of an exposure to COVID-19 in our school community. We have been

working with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) by providing lists of students and

staff who may have been in close contact with the person. The WECHU has provided a letter to any

individuals (students and staff) who have an identified high-risk exposure (close contact) with the

confirmed case and a copy has been posted to the class in Edsby. If you have not been contacted, or received a letter you or your child(ren) have

not been identified as close contacts.

 

Please continue to monitor your child and household members for symptoms of COVID-19 each

morning using the required school board’s screening tool. If your child is ill, please keep them at

home and call your health care provider for further direction. If anyone in the house develops

symptoms, take this self-assessment which will provide next steps to follow.

 

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever and/or chills (temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius or higher)
  • Cough or barking cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Decrease or loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat or difficulty swallowing
  • Runny or stuffy/congested nose
  • Headache (unusual or long lasting)
  • Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea
  • Extreme tiredness that is unusual or muscle aches

 

COVID-19 spreads from close contact with the respiratory droplets of a person infected with the

virus. Respiratory droplets can be released into the air by coughing, sneezing, talking, and normal

breathing. It is possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching surfaces that have the virus on it

and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.

To protect against COVID-19:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer
  • Cover your cough and/or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
  • Maintain 2 metres physical distancing between yourself and others
  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Stay home if you, or someone in your household, are sick

 

Please visit Edsby for up-to-date information about COVID-19 cases. Additionally,

please visit the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit’s page at wechu.org/cv if you are looking for

more information.

 

Sincerely,

R. Reid

Principal

This letter is to let you know of a high-risk exposure case of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our school community. We have been working with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) by providing lists of students and staff who may have been in contact with the individual. If you have not been contacted, you or your children have not been identified as close contacts.  The WECHU is contacting any individuals (students and staff) who have an identified high-risk exposure with the confirmed case, and will give directions to follow.

Please continue to monitor yourself or your child for symptoms of COVID-19 each morning. If you or your child is ill, please remain at home and call your health care provider for further direction. People with COVID-19 may have little to no symptoms; some symptoms are similar to the common cold or flu.  Symptoms range from mild to severe. The most common symptoms include:

 

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Change in smell or taste

 

COVID-19 spreads from close contact with the respiratory droplets of a person infected with the virus. Respiratory droplets can be released into the air by coughing, sneezing, talking, and normal breathing. It is possible for a person to get the COVID-19 by touching surfaces that have the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.

 

To protect against COVID-19:

 

  • Wash hands more often with soap and water or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer
  • Cover your cough and/or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
  • Maintain 2 m physical distancing between yourself and others
  • Wear a mask or face coverings
  • Stay home when you are sick
