Prevention is important

  • The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
    • Stay home when you are sick. 
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. 
    • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using facemask.
      • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear facemask to protect themselves from respiratory viruses, including 2019-nCoV. 
      • Facemask should be used by people who show symptoms of 2019 novel coronavirus, in order to protect others from the risk of getting infected. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a healthcare facility).
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.  
      • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.

    For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website.

    Superintendent's 20-21 End-of-Year Remarks

    I generally enjoy sharing end-of-the-year remarks just prior to the summer break. And this school year will be no exception, despite 2020-21 having been exceptional in every other way.

    June 23, 2020 — End of Year Message

    Each and every one of us employed by New Brunswick Public Schools, more than 2,000 in all, were engaged in a daunting and remarkable undertaking. We did not know what to expect, at least in the beginning, and much of what we did from March through June 22 was developed along the way. We strategized, we improvised, and we persevered.
