CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

Bedford County Public Schools is working to carefully monitor the health status of our school and community in relation to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our school division maintains regular communication with the regional offices of the Virginia Department of Health, which serves as the conduit of information for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). 

Our School Nurse Team continues to provide appropriate preventative health instruction for students and families in regard to any communicable conditions, especially those of a respiratory or viral nature. 

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially in areas where someone is known to be ill. 
  • Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
