Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Resurrection Christian School has been coordinating with local public health agencies as we monitor the global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVD-19), keeping in close contact with Larimer County Health Department (LCHD), and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) as this situation continues to evolve.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. At this time, there is no vaccine for COVID-19.

Information from Larimer County Health Department

 

  • Individual risk depends on exposure. People in communities where ongoing community spread of COVID-19 has been reported are at an elevated — though still relatively low — risk of exposure.

  • Current public health efforts are focused on containing spread of this virus and mitigating the impact of this virus.

  • We encourage residents to take everyday actions to help prevent infection from COVID-19, including:

    • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.

    • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing, throw the tissue away and then wash your hands.

    • Avoid touching your face including your eyes, nose and mouth.

    • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, like door knobs and your phone.

    • Avoid being around anyone with cold- or flu-like symptoms.

    • If you are sick, stay home and away from public places.

    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases. The masks are used to keep people who are sick from spreading it to others.

  • Individuals and organizations are encouraged to prepare for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in our community. Here are tips for preparing at home, at work, at large gatherings and more.
