With the growing concern in our communities about the Coronavirus/COVID-19 we thought we would share some good resources that we have found and others are using to keep their communities updated and informed. Dr. Zauner and I continue to monitor this situation and have been communicating with the Department of Public Health, Ga DOE, Governor’s Office, and others. We will keep you updated with any news and developments in the days and weeks to come with this situation.
Linked below is the messaging from those systems who currently have a confirmed case or presumptive cases of the Coronavirus in their community. These systems have each done a great job providing information and resources to educate and inform their teachers, parents, children, and staff.
