Health Guidance for response to H1N1 Flu modified. Schools Reopen.
Contra Costa County Department of Public Health is no longer closing schools because of H1N1 (swine flu). Coyote Creek Elementary was closed on May 1 and will reopen tomorrow, May 6. The District dispatched a sanitizing crew to Coyote Creek on Monday and Tuesday to spend two full days sanitizing and disinfecting the school following the school’s closure due to two “probable” cases of the H1N1 influenza virus.
The decision to reopen the school was made after the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidance on Tuesday that schools no longer needed to be closed unless student or staff absences interfere with the school’s ability to operate, because the H1N1 flu appears to be less severe than initially determined.
The following recommendations remain in place:
- Anyone who is sick (fever with cough or sore throat) should stay home until they are symptom free for 24 hours.
- Consult your physician or health care provider if symptoms persist.
- Everyone is encouraged to continue practicing good hand washing and cough etiquette.
- County health will continue to monitor N1H1 Flu situations.
- City will continue to work with and cooperate with the county and school district assessments and decisions.
More information on the new guidance is available on the CCHS website: www.cchealth.org or the CCHS Health Emergency Information Line at 1-888-959-9911.
