WCSD: If You’re Sick, Please Stay Home

Washoe County School District has seen an increased number of reports of influenza-like illness in a number of schools. They’re working closely with the Washoe County Health District on prevention measures including thorough cleaning and exclusion of sick students and staff members. Their recommendation is that any student or staff member who has nausea, vomiting, or fever must be excluded from work or class for 24 hours after the symptoms resolve. The 24-hour exclusion policy for fever and/or vomiting is in place at a number of schools in the Washoe County School District.
