Keep Hands Clean

Did you know that washing your hands with soap & water eliminates #Coronavirus molecules preventing the virus from infecting you & others? The same is true when you disinfect surfaces. Science says it works. https://bit.ly/2w7TGAJ #COVID19 #txed #StayWellTexas

You hear it all the time during flu season: wash your hands to prevent the spread of flu. You may have heard advice encouraging you to do the same to stop the spread of COVID-19. But do you know why this simple practice works so effectively? Washing your hands with soap and water breaks up the molecules of the virus and washes them away, preventing the virus from infecting you or others.

To be able to effectively and reliably break up the virus cells, you must wash your hands thoroughly and vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Doing this can be incredibly effective! In fact, a study showed that when a group of elementary aged school children participated in supervised handwashing 2-4 times per day, the spread of a similar virus was reduced by 47%

While it is important to wash your hands, it is also important that we all regularly disinfect surfaces.

COVID-19 has been shown to live for up to three days on various surfaces. If you must leave your home for essential services, be sure to wash your hands as soon as you return and disinfect any surfaces you may have touched. If someone in your home is ill, it’s also important to regularly disinfect. Applying soap and water plus commonly used disinfectants to frequently touched surfaces will break up the virus and carry it away, in the same way soap kills and carries away the virus on your hands.

We hope you and your family are able to regularly take these simple steps, which will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and help your family to stay well. For more information on preventing the spread of COVID-19, visit www.tea.texas.gov/staywell.


Don’t Spread Germs

Don't spread Germs   Don't Spread Germs

You can spread #COVID19 without knowing you have it. Whether you have symptoms or not, #StayHome. If you have to go out, wear a mask/bandana/scarf, regularly wash your hands, and stay 6 feet apart. We must stay #ApartTogether to slow coronavirus.

Puede propagar #COVID19 sin saber que lo tiene.Ya sea que tenga síntomas o no, quedate en casa.Si tiene que salir, use una bandana/bufanda, lávese las manos regularmente y manténgase a 6 pies de distancia.Debemos permanecer separados #ApartTogether.

Stay Home When Sick

Stay home when sick   stay home when sick

Before social distancing, each person with #COVID19 spread the virus to 2.5 more people. At that pace, most would get it, and many more people would die. But we can slow the spread.  That’s why we all #StayHome.  #ApartTogether we slow coronavirus.

Antes del distanciamiento social, cada persona con #COVID19 transmitió el virus a 2.5 personas.A ese ritmo, muchas personas se contagiarían, y muchas personas morirían.Pero podemos retrasar la propagación.Por eso todos quedemonos en casa y paremos el Coronavirus.#ApartTogether


Common Symptoms

Common symptoms of #COVID19 are fever, dry cough, & shortness of breath. If you have mild symptoms, call your doctor & #StayHome. If you develop serious symptoms, such as trouble breathing, pressure in the chest, or bluish lips or face, call your doctor & seek care immediately.

Los síntomas comunes de #COVID19 son fiebre, tos seca y dificultad para respirar.Si tiene síntomas leves, llame a su médico y quedate en casa.Si desarrolla síntomas graves, como dificultad para respirar o presión en el pecho, busque atención médica de inmediato. #StayHome


Wear a Mask

#COVID19 lives on droplets in the lungs of people with the virus, even if they don’t have symptoms. When infected people breathe, the virus enters the air. If you can’t #StayHome, wear a mask/scarf/bandana, stay 6 feet apart, and wash your hands.  #DontGoViral

#COVID19 vive de gotas en los pulmones de las personas con el virus incluso si no tienen síntomas.Cuando las personas contagiadas respiran, el virus entra al aire.Si no puedes quedarte en casa #StayHome, use una bufanda/pañuelo, manténgase a 6 pies de distancia y lávese las manos


Remember the Importance of Social Distancing

social distancing

Texas, remember the importance of social distancing. If you must go out, avoid public spaces and keep your distance from others (at least 6 feet). If we continue to follow valuable public health guidance, fewer of our friends & family will be affected by COVID-19.#StayHomeTexas

Texas, recuerda la importancia del distanciamiento social. Evite espacios públicos y manténgase alejado de los demás (al menos 6 pies). Si continuamos siguiendo la guía de salud pública, menos de nuestros amigos y familiares se verán afectados por COVID-19. #StayHomeTexas

Parents and Staff:

By staying apart for the time being, Hempstead ISD is working to ensure that we are limiting the spread of COVID-19 in our community. In service of this, I want to share a one-minute video (Spanish video link) that reminds us of the most important actions we can take as individuals to reduce risk for ourselves and others:

  • Practice social distancing
  • Wash your hands
  • Stay home as much as you can, especially if you have a cough, fever, or shortness of breath

I encourage you to watch this video with your family. And be sure to share it with family and friends on social media and via email.

Even though we are currently apart, we look forward to coming back together as a community soon.


Potential to Unknowingly Spread COVID-19

COVID-19 Spread

People with no symptoms have the potential to unknowingly spread COVID-19! That’s why it’s best for everyone in your family to stay at home and away from others as much as possible until instructed otherwise from state and local officials. #StayHomeTexas

Las personas sin síntomas tienen el potencial de propagar COVID-19 sin saberlo! Por eso lo mejor para todos en su familia es quedarse en casa y lejos de los demás tanto como sea posible hasta que los funcionarios estatales y locales le indiquen lo contrario. #StayHomeTexas


Remember to always cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow
COVID-19

Coughing & sneezing can send tiny infected droplets into the air which can be inhaled by anyone within 6 feet of us. Always cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and immediately wash your hands to lessen the risk of spreading the virus. Be smart. Stay well! #StayHomeTexas

Toser y estornudar puede llevar gotas infectadas al aire, que pueden ser inhaladas por personas que esteĢn a 6 pies de ti. Siempre tosa o estornude en pañuelos desechables o en el codo y lávese las manos para disminuir la propagación del virus. ¡Mantente sano! #StayHomeTexas


Remember to Stay Apart Even if You Don’t Show Symptoms

Covid-19

The virus lives in tiny droplets in the lungs of people w/ COVID-19, even when they don’t show symptoms. We can breathe the same air as anyone within abt. 6 ft. of us. Staying farther apart from people during this time reduces the chance of breathing in the virus. #StayHomeTexas

El virus vive en gotas en los pulmones de personas con COVID-19, y a veces no tienen síntomas. Puedes respirar el mismo aire que cualquiera a 6 pies de ti. Mantente más alejado de las personas durante este tiempo para reducir la posibilidad de respirar el virus. #StayHomeTexas


CDC Now Recommends You Wear a Mask in Public

Covid-19
