Health Updates

The health and safety of our school community continues to be our priority in relation to the evolving situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in New York City. The New York City Department of Education website includes important updates for students and families, including information about how to protect your health.

Please remember that washing hands regularly with soap and water and practicing social distancing are crucial to preventing the spread of germs. The Department of Health currently recommends that all New Yorkers remain at home as much as possible, even if they feel well and have no symptoms.

Materials and resources regarding COVID-19 have been shared with the WHA community and can be accessed through the links in the text box on this page. Click here for videos about the most effective method of hand-washing, or here for more information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Please continue to visit the websites for the NYC Department of Education or the NYC Health Department for updates - and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
