How to Prevent the Spread of Respiratory Viruses
The best way to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses including COVID-19 is to:
• Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
• Cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing; if no tissue is available, then sneeze or cough into the sleeve or arm;
• Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces regularly; and
• Stay home if ill until your symptoms resolve
Please see the following attachment which was recently in an email from our Director of HCDSB, Mr. Pat Daly with some FAQ’s.
In lieu of the school closure, Lunchbox will be cancelling the deliveries scheduled from March 23 – April 3. They will be notifying parents of the cancellation and a credit will be placed on their Lunchbox Orders account.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Please see the attached Parish Bulletin for information.
As well, for any parishioners attending mass, please be advised that Mass at OLF will be cancelled for the next 3 weekends (March 21/22, March 28/29, April 4/5)
Wishing you a wonderful week – the Staff of Our Lady of Fatima CES
