COVID-19 Recommendations
Posted 3/11/20

LA Unified is taking steps to slow the spread of COVID-19


The current recommended precautions to avoid exposure to the virus are the same precautions you should take to avoid the flu.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash. If tissues aren’t available, cough or sneeze into the inside of your elbow. Then wash your hands.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Please watch our videos at for more information about hygiene practices.


As with any illness, please stay home when you are sick and do not return to school until your temperature is below 100 degrees without the use of fever-reducing medicstion for at least 24 hours.
