CDC and DSHS guidance to self-monitor or self-quarantine

Good afternoon,

 

This is a blanket response to parents and employees who have self-reported.  Please feel free to continue to use the hr@acisd.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:

 

  • The most important steps  
    • Take your temperature twice a day and record
    • Practice social distancing
  • If you have fever, cough, or shortness of breath
    • Do not go out into public
    • Immediately avoid contact with others

  • After reporting symptoms, seek medical advice
    • Call ahead before you go to a doctor's office or emergency room
    • Tell them about your symptoms and guidance received from health department
