LINK TO FAIRFAX COUNTY SCHOOLS UPDATES: This link will take you to the page of updates for Fairfax County Schools. Below, the next two paragraphs are found under the FAQ section and the question: “Is my child at risk?” Along with our children, we also want to show concern for those who are most at risk.
The risk of COVID-19 infection for students and for the U.S. population in general is considered by the CDC to be low. Specific questions may be directed to the Communicable Disease Nurse at the FCHD during business hours. The phone number is 703-267-3511.
During the winter season, many other viruses that cause respiratory illness, such as flu, are common. Precautions that are recommended for avoiding colds, flu, and other respiratory illnesses include good respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene: covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands frequently, and staying home when sick.
