A Letter From Dr. Padilla Regarding Influenza Awareness


ENGLISH LETTER

SPANISH LETTER

  

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

Cold and Flu season is upon us. New York State Department of Health reports that influenza (flu) activity levels have increased over the past several weeks. As a reminder, please do not send your child to school if they are feeling sick. Keeping your sick child home will be a great benefit for the health and wellness of our students and staff. The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk of serious flu complications. Symptoms of influenza can vary, but generally include a high fever, headache, chills, body aches, sore throat, and cough.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offer these tips to prevent influenza:

The 2019-20 flu season has been complicated by recent reports of a novel coronavirus. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Common symptoms in an infected person include a fever, cough, and shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Although there have been reported cases of novel coronavirus globally, to date, there have been no confirmed coronavirus cases in Orange County or New York. The CDC has said the current risk of local transmission is low. 

 

The Newburgh Enlarged City School District will continue to monitor the situation and obtain updates from the New York State Department of Health and local health officials about the diagnosis and management of cases of novel coronavirus, as applicable. People who have traveled to Wuhan, China since Dec. 1, 2019, could have been exposed to the virus. Seek medical care if you traveled to Wuhan and develop a fever and/or respiratory symptoms within 14 days of your return. 

 

If you have questions about these topics, please contact your child(s) Building Health Office Nurse(s). We thank you for your cooperation and support. 

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Roberto Padilla, Superintendent of Schools
Newburgh Enlarged City School District
