MVA’s COVID-19 Action Chart
Utilizing the services of our medical consulting team comprised of a group of 21 dedicated physicians all of whom have children attending our school and have a vested interest in the Academy’s management of COVID and understanding completely the opinions of our constituents regarding COVID and the accompanying safety protocols, Montverde Academy has updated our COVID-19 Action Chart, shared here.
Check out this informative video to see how germs spread:
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid exposure to others who are ill.
- Stay home when you are ill.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Throw away the tissue immediately and wash your hands.
