Tis the Season for viruses

Tis the Season for viruses.  Just a friendly reminder, if you find yourself (or your children/students) coming down with symptoms and questioning whether you should be pushing through and coming to school/work you may find these info sheets helpful.  Our area has seen an increase in RSV, Covid-19, and Flu, along with all the other illness that we see frequently - so please do your best to prevent the spread of germs and sicknesses to others. 
Also, despite our hopes that we would be past the COVID-19 topic, please be reminded that NYS Department of Health Guidelines are still in place.   We encourage you to test upon symptom onset if you suspect COVID-19.  If positive (day zero), one must quarantine for 5 days with return to work/school permitted on day 6 if symptoms have improved, wearing a mask through day 10.  If you test negative on days 6 and 7 you may unmask for days 8-10.  Please be sure to notify your supervisor as soon as possible if you test positive.  
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
