Message from the WGCSD Nurses

Dear Families,

You may be aware that we are seeing many different types of illness in our community and therefore in our health offices. Colds, coughs, flu, sore throats, and stomach illnesses are on the rise and unfortunately these are highly contagious!

We know that you are working hard at keeping your families well. We ask for your continued support in the days ahead, especially when it comes to keeping your children home when they are sick. Even when test results are negative, it is important to give your children the time needed to recover at home, while their symptoms are resolving. This becomes especially important when you are testing your children for COVID-19 at home. We have found that some children will test negative when symptoms first appear, and then will test positive 2 to 3 days later, with further testing.

Please know that your efforts are extremely important to us and are appreciated each and every day! Let’s continue to be strong together, as we hope for healthier days ahead!

With Gratitude,

Your Nurses
