PUBLIC HEALTH INFORMATION

In an effort to provide families with the most up to date guidance regarding COVID-19, we’re sharing the McHenry County Department of Health Resource Guide. This tool will provide guidance on seeking medical care along with recommendations on staying safe during this time. While this tool will not diagnose or treat COVID-19, it is a resource to help you make the best medical decision.

As recommended by public health agencies, please continue to practice proper handwashing and hygiene and practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible. As this crisis continues, we also urge students, staff, and families to be aware of mental health concerns. Please see the links below for more information.
