WCA Response Actions
As a precaution, we are disinfecting appropriate areas of the school. We sanitize classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas, as needed, with disinfectant spray.
Actions You Can Take
The health department recommends the following actions to help limit the spread of COVID-19:
- Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose whenever you are in any public place.
- Wear a mask, and ask your guests to wear one, whenever someone visits your home, but avoid visits to private homes whenever possible.
- Practice social distancing by staying 6 feet away from other people.
- Wash your hands frequently using soap for 20 seconds. If washing isn't possible, use hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol or more.
- Follow capacity restrictions of social gatherings.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow. Then immediately wash your hands.
- Stay home if you are sick and get tested as soon as possible.
- Answer the phone or call back promptly if the health department contacts you. A contact tracer may be trying to reach you with important information.
These are recommended actions even if you don't have COVID-19 symptoms.
This information does not mean you should quarantine or isolate. If you were or might have been in close contact with a person who tested positive, you will be notified by the Washtenaw County Health Department or by WCA school officials.
Medical privacy laws prohibit us from releasing the names of the people who have COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you. With your help, we can maintain the safest learning environment possible.
