CDC now recommends you wear a mask in public where you can’t avoid being near people, like in grocery stores, pharmacies & healthcare settings https://bit.ly/2V8o5Y2. Remember though, your local authorities may have already issued a specific order re: masks. #StayHomeTexas CDC recomienda que use una máscara en público donde no pueda evitar estar cerca de personas, como en supermercados, farmacias y centros de salud https://bit.ly/2V8o5Y2. Es posible que sus autoridades locales ya hayan hecho obligatorio el uso de máscaras. #StayHomeTexas
The virus lives in tiny droplets in the lungs of people w/ COVID-19, even when they don’t show symptoms. We can breathe the same air as anyone within abt. 6 ft. of us. Staying farther apart from people during this time reduces the chance of breathing in the virus. #StayHomeTexas El virus vive en gotas en los pulmones de personas con COVID-19, y a veces no tienen síntomas. Puedes respirar el mismo aire que cualquiera a 6 pies de ti. Mantente más alejado de las personas durante este tiempo para reducir la posibilidad de respirar el virus. #StayHomeTexas
Toser y estornudar puede llevar gotas infectadas al aire, que pueden ser inhaladas por personas que estén a 6 pies de ti. Siempre tosa o estornude en pañuelos desechables o en el codo y lávese las manos para disminuir la propagación del virus. ¡Mantente sano! #StayHomeTexas
Kinder and 1st graders, don’t forget to pick up your packets. We are here until 9:00.

Parents, please drive north through the old bus lane and stay in your vehicle. Personnel passing out packets are paying attention and see you. If it takes a minute, we are grabbing your work. After it’s safe, someone from the vehicle can get out and pick up the packets. Thank you again for your patience through this process.
You can spread #COVID19 without knowing you have it. Whether you have symptoms or not, #StayHome. If you have to go out, wear a mask/bandana/scarf, regularly wash your hands, and stay 6 feet apart. We must stay #ApartTogether to slow coronavirus. https://tea.texas.gov/staywell
¿Sabía que lavarse las manos con agua y jabón elimina las moléculas de #Coronavirus evitando que el virus lo infecte a usted y a otros? Lo mismo es cierto cuando desinfecta superficies. La ciencia dice que funciona. https://bit.ly/2w7TGAJ # COVID19 #txed #StayWellTexas
