May 11h-COVID-19-Update

R.P.S. MEDICATION RETURN DAY:   The Randolph Public School Nurses will be hosting a medication return for families on May 12 from 9am-12pm.  If you have medication to pick up, please come to your student's school within that time frame and:
 
1. Pull up to the main entry door for the building.

2. Please REMAIN IN YOUR CAR.  Your school nurse will come to you. Please note, no one will be permitted to enter the school building for any reason. 

3. Place your family's name in the car window that faces the school.  Write the student's last name and first initial in large, dark lettering on a piece of paper and hold it up so the nurse knows whose medication to bring out. 

4. The nurse will hand you your student's medication in a clear bag, maintaining social distance.

5. Before you drive away please verify you have the correct medication.

6. If you have questions or need to communicate with your school nurse, please email prior to May 12 so that we can maintain social distancing and keep people moving.  
 

ACTIVE COVID-19 CASE UPDATE:  As of May 11, 2020, MDPH has reported 78,462 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Massachusetts up from 77,793 confirmed cases yesterday. There are 7,004 confirmed cases in Norfolk County up from 6,952 cases. New Cases Today: 16, Total Active Cases: 498. Total Recovered: 198. Total Deaths: 35.

FACE COVERING OR MASK MUST BE WORN IN STORES: Governor Baker has made face coverings required state-wide.  Any person entering any business in Randolph, such as a grocery store, pharmacy, take-out food, hardware store and the like must wear a cloth face covering, such as a fabric mask, scarf or bandana, over their nose and mouth. Please save medical masks for health care use and first responders.

If you cough or sneeze, the mask can catch those respiratory droplets so they don't land on other people or surfaces. "So it's not going to protect you, but it is going to protect your neighbor," says Dr. Daniel Griffin at Columbia University, an expert on infectious diseases. "If your neighbor is wearing a mask and the same thing happens, they're going to protect you."
