You likely have seen or read reports about the Novel or new Coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China. There are no suspected or confirmed cases of the coronavirus in New Jersey. Our school nurses have been in communication with the Hudson County Regional Health Commission to monitor the situation and will follow their recommendations.
It is important to note that some individuals may choose to wear a mask for their own protection during cold and flu season. It should not be a cause for alarm.
The entire Jersey City community is reminded that the best way to prevent the spread of the flu or related illnesses is to wash your hands with soap and warm water frequently. Cover your nose/mouth when sneezing or coughing, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
