Influenza and COVID 19 Prevention: What You Should Know


Key Items
  • We are not making a recommendation that events or extracurricular activities be canceled.
  • More information about COVID-19 is available in this handout or on this website; you can check there periodically for updates.
  • More information about Influenza is available here.
  • As always, we recommend that people stay home when sick, cover their cough, and practice good hand hygiene. These recommendations are especially important during cold and flu season.




Information from Greenway's Head Nurse:

Greenway School District officials have been following updates about COVID-19 (coronavirus). As of today, 2 confirmed cases have been reported in Minnesota – both in Ramsey County. District administrators are currently updating our response plans.

Greenway School District is monitoring the situation closely and is in communication with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) for updates on COVID-19.

Health officials do not recommend any changes to daily school operation or school-sponsored events. Their current recommendation remains clear: The best way to protect ourselves and others is through good hygiene.

Wash hands with warm water and soap. The hand washing procedures we teach in school remain the best way to prevent the spread of any illness.

  • Cover your cough: Cough into your sleeve or elbow and not your hands.
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your nose, eyes and mouth.
  • Do not share water bottles, cups/glasses, food, lip balm, etc.
  • Students who do not feel well should stay home from school. Each school has an attendance line to report absences.
    • The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to COVID-19: Fever, cough, shortness of breath
  • People who are traveling should review the Centers for Disease Control’s travel advisories https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html
  • Eat well, get appropriate sleep, practice good hygiene, clean high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, countertops, etc. Then be confident you are taking the right steps to stay healthy.
