Dear Craig Parents/Guardians,
As we continue to monitor news about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that we are preparing in the event the virus spreads to our area. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory infection caused by a new virus that arose from Wuhan, China last December. In those infected, it can lead to fever, cough and shortness of breath. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working hard to learn as much as possible about this new virus, so that we can better understand how it spreads and how we can better protect ourselves.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 spreads mainly from person-to-person and usually between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Its vehicle of choice is coughing and sneezing.

The CDC has put together a list of everyday preventive recommendations to help protect and prevent the spread of viruses which includes the Coronavirus:
