Sun Safety Policy
Goose Creek CISD follows the guidance and expertise of national and local health officials to help protect our students and staff from all communicable diseases. The District is aware that the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) along with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) are monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness COVID-19, caused by a new coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
While there are no reports of this illness in our area, families are encouraged to visit the DSHS and CDC for additional information. No additional precautions have been advised for our District at this time, but we will continue to be in communication with our local partners and stand ready to take all appropriate measures.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus, which are like the precautions you take to avoid the flu. DSHS always recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask:
