During this time of high cold and flu symptoms and now the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, The Delaware Academy Central School District at Delhi is diligently disinfecting high traffic areas of the building each and every day. We will continue to be conscientious of developments in the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.  At this time, we are following the lead of NYS Department of Education, NYS Department of Health, and the Center for Disease Control.  They are currently recommending the following ways to minimize the spread of all viruses:

·  Wash your hands often with soap and water 

·  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

·  Avoid close contact with people who are sick

·  Stay home if you are sick

·  Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing

·  Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
