REMINDER FROM THE CLINIC

Dear Parents & Staff,

As we head into a long holiday weekend, Nurse Osborne would like to urgently remind you of our mutual responsibility to stay safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 at Saint Mary’s Catholic School.

First and foremost, if you believe that you or your child may have been exposed to COVID-19 or are feeling even mildly ill with symptoms—STAY AT HOME and contact your medical-care provider.

As local hospitals and health authorities report rising COVID-19 case rates, we urge everyone to continue social distancing, frequent hand-washing and wearing a face mask when you’re out in public and disinfecting high-touch surfaces.

In addition to these primary measures, we encourage you to:

·       Avoid the 3 C’s: Crowded settings, close contacts and confined spaces. Keep your contacts limited and your social circles small. 

·       Get tested if you feel sick at all. Stay home and isolate; don’t be around others if you are not feeling well.

·   If you test positive, let Saint Mary’s clinic staff know ASAP so we can start our safety protocol. Our direct clinic line is (804) 741-8790. 

·       Quarantine for a full 14 days if you are a known close contact to a person with COVID.

·       Consider getting tested 5-14 days after any possible exposure.

As always, we welcome you to contact the Clinic anytime via telephone at 804.741.8790 or email (clinic@saintmary.org) if you have any health-related questions.
