Brownwood News – The Brownwood ISD has released the following response to the Limited Stay at Home Orders issued by County and City governments. County schools are also joining in this next phase of the response to COVID-19.
Based on the March 26th orders of the City of Bangs, Brown County, the City of Brownwood, and the City of Early, the Bangs, Blanket, Brookesmith, Brownwood, Early, May, and Zephyr ISDs report the following operational adjustments.
In support of the orders, beginning March 28th, any employee in a household with a person testing positive for COVID, or any employee with a fever, cough, or shortness of breath is ordered to stay home until all conditions for return listed in the orders are met. Employees at work with a fever greater than 99.9 will be sent home.
Districts will maintain their off-campus instructional programs for students and their meal programs, according to each district’s plan. Personnel should maintain communication with their supervisors to coordinate work to maintain core district operations. Staff who can provide their services remotely should do so in coordination with their supervisors.
For those essential employees who must still maintain a physical presence in the district:
- Don’t shake hands and wash hands regularly
- Avoid meetings or work environments with more than five people in close proximity
- Social distancing (at least six feet away from other people) should be observed regardless of crowd size
This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor all the available information. We will provide updates via our district websites and email. Thank you for your patience, support, and cooperation.
