Currently, the CDC is recommending simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses such as COVID-19. These include:

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with
unwashed hands.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.

• If possible, avoid close contact with people who are sick.

For more information on COVID-19, contact the Florida Department of Health in Broward County at 1.866.779.6121 or email COVID-19@flhealth.gov

The CSC family will continue to be here for you and our entire child serving community and support in every way we can. Please stay safe and vigilant. Thank you.
