Washington County Letter on Measles, Flu and Norovirus

Dear Parents and Guardians:

We want to inform your school community about measles, the flu (influenza) and norovirus to minimize illness and keep kids in class. Please review this letter to learn how to prevent getting sick, symptoms to look for, and how to avoid passing the illness to others. Contact your health care provider for more information on these illnesses.

Staff and students need to stay home from school and activities when they are sick to prevent passing the illness to others. School districts follow Washington County Public Health and Oregon Health Authority school exclusion guidelines, which state that a child with flu-like symptoms, vomiting or diarrhea should stay home from school until 24 hours after their symptoms have gone away.

Please read the following letter from Washington County Department of Health and Human Services ― Disease Control and Prevention:
