Video – Experts share advice on COVID-19 safety

 

Oct. 22, 2020 – UF Health Jacksonville and Duval County Public Schools have teamed up to create a brief video reminding families to practice healthy habits such as wearing face coverings, social distancing, and frequently washing hands.

The video is being distributed today to families through the district’s parent communication system.

In a note to families, Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene reminded parents of the basics.

“If your children are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms, please keep them home and call your school for further guidance,” she said. “The school will help you get a rapid test to determine whether those symptoms are COVID-19, and that information is critical to preventing the spread.”

The video is available above.
