Oxford, Mississippi (February 27, 2020) — Oxford School District is receiving updates from the CDC as they closely monitor the respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus.
To date, there have been no cases of COVID-19 reported in Mississippi. However, health officials recognize that this is a rapidly evolving situation and that recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. State Department, and the Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH) are subject to frequent change.
We will update our parents, students and staff if/when those recommendations change. Read more information from the CDC here. If you have concerns, please contact our Nursing and Wellness Coordinator, Dr. Suzanne Liddell or the district's Head Nurse, Meg Hayden at (662) 234-3541.
As a reminder:
Take general precautions like frequent hand washing to prevent the spread of any virus, including seasonal flu, which is still active across Mississippi, the Southeast, and the U.S.
If you have flu-like symptoms, it is likely the common cold or a common strain of the flu. Symptoms of coronavirus include, but are not limited to, fever, runny nose, headache, cough, and the general feeling of being unwell; these also are symptoms of the common flu virus.
