Welcome to Blount County Schools

 Coronavirus-19

The Coronavirus, COVID-19 is a virus that may cause a severe respiratory disease. It was recently identified in China and is now being detected worldwide. Students and staff returning from China or areas with active community transmission (www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html) must be self-monitored 14 days after leaving the affected area. Students and staff must contact the Alabama Department of Public of Health Infectious Diseases & Outbreaks Division at 1-800-338-8374 immediately upon return to Alabama. These students and staff must be excluded from school for the duration of this monitoring period and remain home to avoid spreading the virus. If symptoms are present, students and staff are required to present a written physician clearance to return to school. Additional guidance from CDC on returning travelers is available at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/risk-assessment.html .

The Department of Health is recommending handwashing as the best defense to any virus or illness. Our custodians work to keep our schools clean daily and are taking additional measures to disinfect as needed. 

Our school administrators and nurses are monitoring the Department of Health updates daily and will continue to provide our schools and community with current information.
