Dear Parents, Whanau, and Caregivers

There has been a lot of media attention around COVID-19/Coronavirus.

The best preventative steps are:

● Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and dry thoroughly

● Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

● Avoid sharing anything that has come in contact with saliva, whether in your living or social environments

● Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the rubbish

● Have adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals to ensure a healthy immune system

Parents are asked to discuss this with their children, particularly as the weather begins to change.
