Orange County Public Schools is in constant communication with the Florida Department of Health and Department of Education regarding responses to COVID-19. As of March 22, there have been 830 cases confirmed in Florida and 13 residents have died.
OCPS is following appropriate protocols to protect staff and students. The district’s current cleaning products are proven effective against the Coronavirus (the virus that causes COVID-19). Custodial crews are doing thorough “deep cleanings” of schools and offices during spring break.
When any person exhibits any of the symptoms listed below, he or she will be encouraged to stay home. Isolation limits the spread of the virus and will protect the overall health and wellness of others.
Anyone with symptoms should call a medical provider for guidance on what to do. Medical providers will ask questions to screen people for COVID-19 or other illnesses, including the “common flu” which is also prevalent this time of year.
