CHS Stays Clean

The coronavirus is a threat, but CHS is trying to stay clean and healthy.

The new strand of the coronavirus that is spreading around the world is called the COVID-19. The coronavirus is a strand of respiratory illnesses that can range from the common cold to a severe respiratory disease. COVID-19 currently has no vaccines. For some around the world, the virus has proven to be deadly. While anyone can contract the virus, it is most dangerous for  babies, older adults, and anyone who currently has any serious health issues like cancer or autoimmune disorder.

CHS is trying to stay clean by using a disinfectant spray called Total Solutions. Teachers have been instructed to keep shared surfaces clean with this product.

Total Solutions is a germ-killing product for use in industrial kitchens, food processing plants, and other areas where food sanitation products contact surfaces. This product is recommended for schools and colleges, stadiums, coolers, and refrigerators.

The Coronavirus is thought to live up to nine days on a hard surface. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) advises people to avoid close contact with people who are sick and to avoid touching one’s eyes, mouth, and nose. People are also advised to stay home if you are sick to avoid getting others sick. Health officials say that the disease can be treated similarly to the flu or a common cold.

The PCS maintenance department is working with schools to provide the proper cleaning supplies for the custodians. The maintenance staff has a set of special cleaning supplies for days when there are more students absent than normal. Parents are being asked to notify the school, if possible, if their child is out sick at all.

PCS is planning to stay updated on information about the virus and is working to provide safe cleaning supplies.
