The 2019-2020 Flu Season has been complicated by reports of a new coronavirus originating in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province, China. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses: common symptoms in an infected person include a fever, cough, and shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Confirmed cases of coronavirus in California include one in L.A. County and one in Orange County. There are currently no reported cases of coronavirus in Contra Costa County. At this time, the CDC continues to believe the risk of coronavirus to the American public at large remains low.
Acalanes Union High School District will continue to partner with the California Department of Public Health, which will provide updated information about the diagnosis and management of cases of novel coronavirus, as applicable, in an effort to identify and contain any future cases.
