1/31/2020, Coronavirus Updates

- 校長 黎敏 Principal Li-Morgan

Today U.S. officials declared the Coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency. As a result of the declaration, foreign nationals who have traveled to China in the last two weeks and aren't immediate family members of U.S. citizens or permanent residents will be temporarily banned from entering the country, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. Azar also announced that anyone entering the U.S. who has been in China's Hubei province in the last two weeks will be subject to a two-week quarantine. Azar added, “I want to stress: the risk of infection for Americans remains low, and with these and our previous actions we are working to keep the risk low.”

TCS will remain open at this time; however, we ask that anyone who recently returned from China to not come to school for 2 weeks (from the date of return).  For everyone else, please practice good healthy habits, e.g., cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.  Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.

If you are sick, US CDC recommends the following:

·         If you were in China in the last 14 days and feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should:

o   Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms (so that they can provide you instructions in order to not infect others while in their visiting room).

o   Avoid contact with others.

o   Not travel while sick.

o   Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.

o   Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to avoid spreading the virus to others. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
