Below you will find links to press conferences from Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Education related to state wide orders and recommendations.  This factual information may be helpful in understanding why Ohio is taking certain precautions.

 

In an effort to prevent the spread of germs, please remind your children of the importance of good hygiene, including proper handwashing techniques.  

The district has many cleaning products and supplies on hand to be used to disinfect the buildings and buses.  Additional products and supplies have been ordered in a proactive approach to prevent the spread of germs and viruses once students return to the building.   

 

Frequently Asked Questions for Ohio's schools concerning the Coronavirus can be found at the Ohio Department of Education's website, or by clicking HERE.

Ohio Administrative Code 3701-3-02: Diseases to be Reported, states:

The diseases listed in this rule and classified as class "A,"class "B," and class "C" are declared to be dangerous to the public health and are reportable. The occurrence of cases or suspected cases of a disease classified as class "A," class "B," or class "C" shall be reported, in detail, by health care providers and laboratories to the board of health on forms as prescribed and provided by the director and shall be reported in accordance with this rule and Chapter 3701-3 of the Administrative Code.

(A) Due to the severity of disease or the potential for epidemic spread, diseases of major public health concern are classified as class "A." The following diseases are classified as class "A" and shall be reported immediately via telephone in accordance with rules 3701-3-033701-3-04, and 3701-3-05 of the Administrative Code: (see OAC website at http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/3701-3-02)

Therefore, since COVID-19 is a Class A reportable disease, it falls under this section of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC).  Please note COVID-19 was added to Class Diseases after the passage and the same class A rules apply for it currently. Based on this, Eaton Community Schools is required to report all positive tests to the Preble County Health Department.
