EVERYONE: DO YOUR PART
The best way for all San Franciscans to reduce their risk of getting sick, as with seasonal colds or the flu, still applies to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- Do not come to school if sick.
- If your child has chronic health conditions, consult your doctor about school attendance.
- Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Cover your cough or sneeze (in your sleeve!).
- Avoid touching your face, nose and eyes.
- Try alternatives to shaking hands, like an elbow bump or wave.
- If you have visited an area identified by the CDC at Level 3 or higher, follow CDC guidelines for self-quarantine and ensure individual illness symptom-free per CDC recommendation prior to returning.
- If you have recently returned from a country, state or region with ongoing COVID-19 infections, closely monitor your health and follow the instructions of public health officials and follow CDC guidelines.
- There is no recommendation to wear masks at this time to prevent yourself from getting sick.
Call 311 and sign up for alert service for the City of San Francisco’s official updates: text COVID19SF to 888-777.
You can also prepare for the possible disruption caused by an outbreak:
- Prepare to work from home if that is possible for your job and your employer.
- Make sure you have a supply of all essential medications for your family.
- Prepare a child care plan if you or a caregiver are sick.
- Make arrangements about how your family will manage a school closure.
- Plan for how you can care for a sick family member without getting sick yourself.
- Take care of each other and check-in by phone with friends, family and neighbors that are vulnerable to serious illness or death if they get COVID-19.
- Keep common spaces clean to help maintain a healthy environment for you and others. Frequently touched surfaces should be cleaned regularly with disinfecting sprays, wipes or common household cleaning products.
