The Carson City School District will be sanitizing its schools during the four-day weekend Friday through Monday.
In a phone announcement
conducted by Superintendent Richard Stokes, the district stated it was
coordinating efforts with state and local health experts to ensure it was
minimizing impacts from the COVID-19 strain to staff and students.
Stokes reported during
Tuesday’s Carson City School Board meeting the district is working with Carson
City Health and Human Services officials, other school superintendents in the
state and the Nevada Department of Education to ensure the disinfectant process
goes well this weekend and encourages the public not to enter Carson’s schools
“We would like to keep our
schools and offices as safe as possible,” Stokes said Tuesday.
The public has been
encouraged to sneeze or cough into the inside of their elbows, to wash their
hands with warm water and soap frequently and to keep hands away from their
mouth, nose and eyes. Those who experience flu-like symptoms are encouraged to
remain at home.
The district has reported
currently it is safe for staff and students to attend schools, and should
conditions change at any time, additional announcements would be made.
