From The Wheeler Health Center:   From The Wheeler Health Center:         You may be aware of reports of an international health risk related to “2019nCoV” which is also known as a strain of coronavirus.  Please be assured that our Health Center is monitoring and following standard health care procedures set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and is in touch with our consulting School Physician Dr. Barbara Gaines, as well as following all updates related to Rhode Island schools issued by the RI State Department of Health.

   As we always urge each flu season, families are encouraged to practice good health hygiene to prevent the spread of flu and other respiratory illnesses. These reminders are important for adults and children alike: wash hands frequently, cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow or tissues, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, avoid close contact with others who are sick, and keep surfaces clean. Good self-care such as rest, hydration, nutrition and exercise are also important.  Most importantly, please keep children at home if they are ill and reach out to your family health care provider when needed.       All of these steps will help during this busy cold and flu season. The nursing staff of the Health Center, Kathy McKenna and Judy Diaz, are available to the Wheeler community and are abreast of all developments that affect the health of our students.
