April 3rd, 2020 Public Health Release
04/03/2020

Parents and Staff of Holland ISD:

 

You hear it all the time during flu season: wash your hands to prevent the spread of flu. You may have heard advice encouraging you to do the same to stop the spread of COVID-19. But do you know why this simple practice works so effectively? Washing your hands with soap and water breaks up the molecules of the virus and washes them away, preventing the virus from infecting you or others.

 

To be able to effectively and reliably break up the virus cells, you must wash your hands thoroughly and vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Doing this can be incredibly effective! In fact, a study showed that when a group of elementary aged school children participated in supervised handwashing 2-4 times per day, the spread of a similar virus was reduced by 47%

 

While it is important to wash your hands, it is also important that we all regularly disinfect surfaces.

 

COVID-19 has been shown to live for up to three days on various surfaces. If you must leave your home for essential services, be sure to wash your hands as soon as you return and disinfect any surfaces you may have touched. If someone in your home is ill, it’s also important to regularly disinfect. Applying soap and water plus commonly used disinfectants to frequently touched surfaces will break up the virus and carry it away, in the same way soap kills and carries away the virus on your hands.

 

We hope you and your family are able to regularly take these simple steps, which will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and help your family to stay well. For more information on preventing the spread of COVID-19, visit www.tea.texas.gov/staywell.

 

Best,

Shane Downing

Padres y personal de Holland ISD,

 

Lo escucha todo el tiempo durante la temporada de gripe: lávese las manos para prevenir la propagación de la gripe. Es posible que haya escuchado consejos que le recomiendan a hacer lo mismo para detener la propagación del COVID-19. Pero, ¿sabe por qué esta simple práctica funciona tan bien? Lavarse las manos con agua y jabón divide las moléculas del virus y las elimina, evitando que el virus lo contagie a usted u otras personas.

 

Para poder dividir de manera eficaz y confiable las células del virus, debe lavarse las manos intensamente y energéticamente durante al menos 20 segundos. ¡Hacer esto puede ser increíblemente eficaz! De hecho, un estudio demostró que cuando un grupo de niños de primaria en edad escolar participaba en el lavado supervisado de manos de 2 a 4 veces al día, la propagación de un virus similar se redujo en un 47%.

 

Si bien es importante lavarse las manos, también es importante desinfectar regularmente las superficies alrededor de su hogar. Se ha demostrado que el COVID-19 vive hasta tres días en varias superficies. Piense en todas las cosas en su hogar que usted y su familia tocan varias veces al día: manija de puertas, interruptores de luz, manijas de grifos, encimeras, muebles y más. Si toca un objeto o una superficie que alguien acaba de tocar con el virus en sus manos, el virus ahora podría estar en sus manos. Aplicar jabón y agua más desinfectantes comunes en estas superficies dividirá el virus y lo eliminará, de la misma manera que el jabón mata y elimina el virus de las manos.

 

Esperamos que usted y su familia puedan tomar regularmente estos dos simples pasos, que ayudarán a prevenir la propagación del COVID-19 y ayudarán a que su familia se mantenga bien. Para obtener más información sobre cómo prevenir la propagación del COVID-19, visite www.tea.texas.gov/staywell.

 

Atentamente,

Shane Downing

Parents of Holland ISD,

Though we are apart right now for our health and safety, we at Holland ISD continue to support each other as a community, and right now we must work together to fight COVID-19.  In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Holland ISD will be reaching out to you via email, phone, text message, and social media over the next two weeks to share vitally important guidance.

This guidance is based on what scientists know about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and it is our hope that you will do what you can to follow these practices and share them with your friends and family.

Thank you for all you are doing to educate your children at home and all the efforts you’re making to keep your family healthy and safe. We know this is a difficult time. If we stand apart as a community during this stretch and continue following the public health practices we will be sharing over the coming days, we will be back together soon.

Stay well!
