Posted on 02/04/2020

Dear Quincy Public Schools Staff, Students, and Families,

Please be aware that Quincy Public Schools administrative staff have been in close contact with City of Quincy Health Department Commissioner Ruth Jones and together we are monitoring the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019 nCoV) advisories from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). At this time, Massachusetts remains at a very low risk for the 2019 novel coronavirus and Quincy Public Schools continues to follow the recommendations provided by these agencies. If the CDC or the MDPH make a decision to put any restrictions in place as this situation evolves, Quincy Public Schools will update our response as needed.

I want to acknowledge that this is a stressful situation for many students and families with relatives and friends living in or near the affected communities in China. I hope we can all express our support and concern for our QPS students, families, and neighbors in the Quincy community and make an extra effort to be kind and positive in the coming days and weeks.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 617-984-8701, Health Services Coordinator Rita Bailey at 617-984-8899, or the Quincy Health Department at 617-376-1270.

Sincerely,

Richard DeCristofaro, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

Health Advisory 2.4.2020 Translated

2020年2月4日,

亲爱的昆士公立学校的职员,学生和家庭,

请留意,昆士公立学校行政人员已与昆士市卫生局局长Ruth Jones保持密切联系,通过与麻省公共卫生部(MDPH)和疾病控制中心(CDC)的提议,我们正在共同监视2019年新型冠状病毒。目前为止,2019年新型冠状病毒在麻省存在的风险仍然很低,昆士公立学校将继续遵循这些机构提供的建议。如果疾病控制中心或麻省公共卫生部在这种情况演变过程中采取任何限制措施,昆士公立学校将根据需要更新我们的回应。

我想承认这病毒的存在对许多学生,家庭和有亲戚朋友住在中国感染地区会造成一定的压力。我希望我们大家都继续可以对昆士公立学校的学生,家庭和邻居表示支持和关注,并在接下来的几天和几周内做出额外的努力,以保持大家的友善和积极。

如有您任何疑问,请随时致电617-984-8701与我联系,卫生服务协调员Rita Bailey617-984-8899)或昆士卫生部(617-376-1270)。
