    Video with Tips to Keep Your Family Safe

    What are the procedures and instructions for students to wash their hands (even while at home)?

    We are encouraging families continue to prioritize student hand washing at home. Hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is the most effective way to contain the spread of illness and disease, including COVID-19. Learn more about hand washing and proper technique by watching this video.

    What is the Guidance from Public Health – Seattle & King County?

    We know there are many questions about risk of exposure to COVID-19. Please visit the Public Health Seattle and King County website for the latest guidance from public health.

    The simple actions below are among the most effective to avoid illness.

    • Stay at home and avoid all non-essential contact with others.
    • Limit trips for groceries, gas and other essentials.
    • If you must go out, stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times and wear a face covering.
    • Wash your hands frequently and don't touch your face.

    If you have not been in close contact with a sick person with COVID-19, you are at low risk for infection

    You generally need to be in close contact with a sick person to get infected. Close contact includes:

    • Living in the same household as a sick person with COVID-19,
    • Caring for a sick person with COVID-19,
    • Being within 6 feet of a sick person with COVID-19 for about 10 minutes, OR
    • Being in direct contact with secretions from a sick person with COVID-19 (e.g., being coughed on, kissing, sharing utensils, etc.)
