CDC suggests use of masks where social distancing is difficult

CDC suggests use of masks where social distancing is difficult

Face masks are now being suggested for use by the Centers for Disease Control, to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

As stated on the CDC website, “...CDC recommends wearing cloth facing coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”

The six-foot social distancing is still strongly emphasized and important to slow the spread of the virus also.

People are suggested to wear cloth face masks and not surgical masks or N-95 respirators as the latter are critical supplies needed for healthcare workers and other medical responders.

Masks should:

• Fit snuggly but fit comfortably against the side of the face.

Schools close through May 31 amid COVID-19 safety measures

Schools close through May 31 amid COVID-19 safety measures

Less than a week after Clay County schools posted they would be closed through April 30, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts announced the closure of all Nebraska schools until May 31, ultimately ending the in-classroom 2019-20 school year for Clay County students.

Additionally, the Nebraska School Activities Association and Executive Director Jay Bellar also announced the cancellation of all remaining NSAA spring activity practices and competitions, including district and state.

The announcement of both did not come without some sadness for school staff and students.

“It is very sad and disheartening that we will not be able to finish the 2019-20 school year normally,” Harvard Public School Superintendent Michael Derr said.
