Kaharoa School

Term Two • 2018

Bugs and Germs

Well, that was a different start to term 2! Having a nasty gastrobug (which was confirmed by Public Health last Thursday as Norovirus) is not nice for anyone. Having so many children and staff affected at the same time in the first week was a rocky start to say the least. Norovirus germs can survive for up to 15 days so it is very easy to become infected or reinfected. The Public Health Educators who visited the school stressed the importance of hand hygiene-thoroughly washing and drying hands before eating and after going to the toilet. The other most significant point was to ensure that 48 hours had elapsed following last incident of vomiting and/or diarrhea before any student or staff member returned to school. Some children have had a relapse so these 48 hours are vital to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. [Read More...]
