COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) RESOURCES
The Marysville School District is working closely with the Snohomish Health District, the Governor's office, OSPI, and the
WA State Department of Health to stay informed of the most current information and recommendations regarding the Coronavirus.
The health and safety of people in Snohomish County is the Snohomish Health District’s priority. The Health District works in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in rapid response to Coronavirus.
To minimize the risk of spread, the Snohomish Health District coordinates closely with healthcare providers to quickly evaluate and identify suspected cases.
Steps you can take to prevent the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19 are the standard universal precautions:
Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with warm water and soap. Think you’ve washed them enough? Wash again. If water not available, use hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Clean and disinfect frequently used surfaces. Follow instructions on the product label for disinfectants, and check that the product is registered with the EPA.
Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or sleeve and then wash your hands
Stay home if sick, keep sick children home and avoid close contact with others.
If you do visit a clinic and have any respiratory symptoms, wear a mask. Most medical facilities provide these masks near the entrance or at the front counter.

SCHOOL HEALTH FORMS
NEED IMMUNIZATION RECORDS FOR YOUR CHILD ?
TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL
APPEARANCE, BEHAVIOR – unusually tired,pale, lack of appetite, difficult to wake, or irritable. This is sufficient reason to keep a child home from school.
EYES – red with thick green or yellow drainage may

SCABIES – Children with scabies may be admitted back to school 24 hours after treatment begins.

Bringing a child to school with the above symptoms puts other children and staff at risk of getting sick. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, in the long run, this means less illness and fewer lost workdays for parents.
FLU AND INFLUENZA
It is Flu season, and not too late to get vaccinated! Check with your doctor’s office, medical clinic, or a local pharmacy to get the Influenza vaccine.
The Flu virus is spread from person to person through droplets, or contaminated surfaces. People infected with the flu can spread the flu to someone else before symptoms develop and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick.
If you or your child has the Flu: it is important to protect the health of others by covering your cough, frequent hand washing, and staying home away from crowds when you are ill.
When reporting your child’s school absence, please specify their symptoms as we report these specifics to the Snohomish Health district for disease surveillance.
