Jeffco Public Schools follows health protocols and advisement from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Safety (CDPHE). The state of Colorado is monitoring the Chinese 2019 Novel Coronavirus. In addition to this recent concern, Jeffco would like to remind families to be vigilant about the prevalence of Influenza A and B as well. 
Both the influenza virus and coronavirus spread through coughing and sneezing and have similar symptoms of fever, cough, and respiratory illness.
As with any respiratory virus, influenza A and B included, you can protect yourself by practicing these everyday actions:
  • wash hands frequently with soap and water
  • cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing
  • disinfect surfaces
  • avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms
