Information on Wellness and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Even though there has not been any reports of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our state or schools, we are diligently monitoring the situation.

As always, Lamar County Schools encourage families to ensure children who are sick remain home for at least 24 hours fever free (without medication) before returning to school.  

Other helpful ways to stay well:

  1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  2. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.  Then wash your hands.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  4. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  5. Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.  You should remain home until you have been fever free for 24 hours, without medication.
  6. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water, for at least 20 seconds.
