Extra Precautions TTUSD is taking to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff based on COVID-19

An outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus first identified in China, has caused a worldwide outbreak of respiratory illness. Symptoms can be fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.

At this time, persons considered to be at risk are those with travel to countries that have a widespread illness, or those in close contact with persons infected with the novel coronavirus.  We are keeping track of this situation through proven and trustworthy sources: our local public health departments, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)
, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  These health officials believe the risk to our school community is low at this time.  

Health officials recommend taking the same steps to protect against coronavirus as we take to prevent the spread of everyday illness like the common cold or the flu: 

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

While a new type of illness can be scary, we can protect our students, teachers, and the broader community by using simple everyday actions that protect people from other types of respiratory viruses. This is important not just to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, but to help prevent the spread of other infections that can lead to student illness and absences.

Thank you for your support of our district, our schools, our students and our teachers and staff.
