COVID FACTS

Cases are on the rise.  Floodwood has had 8 cases in 10 days.  (This does not include surrounding areas.) 

Facts:

  • COVID spreads 2 days before a person shows any symptoms

  • COVID is contagious for 10 days after symptoms show up.

  • It can take 14 days for symptoms to show up after being exposed

  • COVID can look like a headache, allergies, common cold, strep throat, flu, food poisoning, fever….. In mild cases only one symptom such as a runny nose. 

  • COVID affects every person differently (mild for one person could mean severe for others).

For this reason we ask students on quarantine to stay home for 14 days.  If they continue to be social, it puts more people at risks and can compromise the in person learning model, prom and graduation.
