Boston Health Officials Announce Closure of Eliot K-8 School Due to Coronavirus Concerns

BOSTON – Wednesday, March 11, 2020 – Today the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC), in conjunction with the Boston Public Schools (BPS), announced the closure of the three campuses of the Eliot K-8 School after a non-student member of the school’s community tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). At this time, BPS plans to reopen all three sites of the Eliot school on Thursday, March 19, 2020.

BPHC staff are working on an ongoing basis to assess risk and follow up with all known
contacts of this individual. At this point we encourage everyone who has been physically inside one of three Eliot buildings to practice social distancing and avoid public places until Thursday, March 19, 2020. If you or anyone associated with the school develops fever 100.4°F/38°C or higher, cough or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care provider or the Mayor’s Health Line 617-534-5050 or Toll-Free: 1-800-847-0710.
 
What does “monitor your health” mean?
    Take your temperature with a thermometer twice a day and watch for a fever. A fever is a temperature 100.4°F/38°C or higher.
    Watch for symptoms including a fever, cough, trouble breathing, shortness of breath.
    If you experience a fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher) or any other symptoms, call your health care provider immediately. Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room.
What does it mean to practice social distancing?
    Keep your distance from others (6 feet or 2 meters away)
    Do not take public transportation, taxis, or ride-shares during this period.
