    - Good Morning Students and Staff: As many of you are aware, the country is experiencing an outbreak of the Corona Virus. From what we know of this virus, it is similar to previous outbreaks of other upper respiratory viruses. Soap and water, and alcohol-based hand santizers, can kill it. Washing your hands is the single most effective tool to combat the spread of this virus. If you cannot get to a sink and water, hand sanitizers can also be an effective tool to kill germs. The video you are about to see will demonstrate the correct handwashing procedure.
