COVID-19: APART WE STAND TOGETHER

2 months ago

April 1, 2020

Dear TIGER Parents,
Though we are apart right now for our health and safety, we at Devers ISD continue to support each other as a community, and right now we must work together to fight COVID-19. In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Devers ISD will be reaching out to you via email, phone, text message, and social media over the next two weeks to share vitally important guidance. This guidance is based on what scientists know about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and it is our hope that you continue doing all you can to follow these practices and share them with your friends and family. Thank you for what you are doing to educate your children at home and all the efforts you're making to keep your family healthy and safe. We know this is a difficult time. If we stand apart as a community during this stretch and continue following the public health practices we will be sharing over the coming days, we will be back together soon.

Stay well!
Elizabeth Harris, Superintendent

This message about COVID-19 will help to keep you safe and healthy. The most important thing you can do right now is stay at home! If that's not possible, practice social distancing by staying 6 feet from others. Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches and counter tops. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, and cover a cough or sneeze with your elbow. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 - a high fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath, call your doctor. Remember, by staying apart now, we can all be together again soon! We miss our students, and hope you and your families are all well.

Parents and Staff of Devers ISD,
You hear it all the time during flu season: wash your hands to prevent the spread of flu. You may have heard advice encouraging you to do the same to stop the spread of COVID-19. But do you know why this simple practice works so effectively? Washing your hands with soap and water breaks up the molecules of the virus and washes them away, preventing the virus from infecting you or others.
To be able to effectively and reliably break up the virus cells, you must wash your hands thoroughly and vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Doing this can be incredibly effective! In fact, a study showed that when a group of elementary aged school children participated in supervised hand washing 2-4 times per day, the spread of a similar virus was reduced by 47%.
While it is important to wash your hands, it is also important that we all regularly disinfect surfaces.
COVID-19 has been shown to live for up to three days on various surfaces. If you must leave your home for essential services, be sure to wash your hands as soon as you return and disinfect any surfaces you may have touched. If someone in your home is ill, it’s also important to regularly disinfect. Applying soap and water plus commonly used disinfectants to frequently touched surfaces will break up the virus and carry it away, in the same way soap kills and carries away the virus on your hands.
We hope you and your family are able to regularly take these simple steps, which will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and help your family to stay well.
For more information on preventing the spread of COVID-19, visit www.tea.texas.gov/staywell.
Stay well!
Elizabeth Harris, Superintendent

You can spread COVID-19 without knowing you have it. Whether you have symptoms or not, Stay Home. If you go out, wear a mask/bandana/scarf, regularly wash your hands, and stay 6 feet apart. We must stay Apart Together to slow coronavirus.

Before social distancing, each person with COVID-19 spread the virus to 2.5 more people. At that pace, most would get it, and many more people would die. But we can slow the spread. That’s why we all should stay home. Apart Together we slow coronavirus.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, & shortness of breath. If you have mild symptoms, call your doctor and stay home. If you develop serous symptoms, such as trouble breathing, pressure in the chest, or bluish lips or face, call your doctor & seek care immediately.

COVID-19 lives on droplets in the lungs of people with the virus, even it they don't have symptoms. When infected people breathe, the virus enters the air. If you can't stay home, wear a mask, scarf, bandana, stay 6 feet apart, and wash your hands.

Texas, remember the importance of social distancing. If you must go out, avoid public spaces and keep your distance from others at least 6 feet. If we continue to follow valuable public health guidance, fewer of our friends & family will be affected by COVID-19. #StayHomeTexas

People with no symptoms have the potential to unknowingly spread COVID-19! That’s why it’s best for everyone in your family to stay at home and away from others as much as possible until instructed otherwise from state and local officials. #StayHomeTexas

Coughing & sneezing can send tiny infected droplets into the air which can be inhaled by anyone w/in 6 feet. Cough & sneeze into your elbow to lessen the risk.
