CDC and DSHS guidance to self-monitor or self-quarantine
This is a blanket response to parents and employees who have self-reported. Please feel free to continue to use the firstname.lastname@example.org email for support, but we are not requiring that you continue to self-report. Mrs. Ramaker would for like all of you to be aware of this information. Please feel free to forward to friends and family.
We have received up-to-date information from the DSHS. The guidance asks us to encourage employees and families who have traveled to places such as: theme parks, rodeos, cruises, sports tournaments, and areas with a large amount of known cases of COVID-19 to self-monitor for a fourteen day period. With that being said, if you have any symptoms as small as a tickle in your throat, you should immediately self-quarantine.
General steps to self-monitor:
