COVID-19: Coronavirus

Health News
The Peters Township School District is closely following the information that is evolving regarding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For the past several weeks, the District has been following the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and we are in frequent contact with the Washington County Public Safety Department to stay on top of any developments. 
 
The coronavirus is spread much like the common cold or flu, and the recommended precautions remain the same. As always in cold and flu season, our custodial staff is spending extra time and attention on high-touch surfaces and we have increased the number of hand sanitizer stations throughout the schools.

Please Note: Up-to-date information about this virus should be obtained from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Washington County Public Safety Department, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Prevention

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. These everyday preventive actions are adapted from the CDC to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home and keep children home from school when sick.
  • Follow your physician and health department guidelines regarding returning to work/school following illness.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
