October 20, 2020 Dear Parents and Guardians, Mercer County Career Center was informed this morning of a confirmed case of COVID-19 of an individual in our school. Facility cleaning has been ongoing and will continue. If your student was in close contact with this individual, you will receive a phone call notifying you by the PA Department of Health. COVID-19 is a disease that is capable of rapidly spreading person-to-person. If someone is infected, that person can expose other people to COVID-19 even if they show no symptoms. Symptoms of COVID-19 may include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever or chills, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea. Older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions are at a higher risk for serious illness. If you or your child are identified as a close contact (defined as an individual who was within 6 feet of an infectious person for at least 15 minutes or who was directly exposed to respiratory secretions [e.g., cough or sneeze]), you will be contacted by a representative of the Pennsylvania Department of Health or your local health department who will provide further information and instructions. Even if you or your child are not notified that you are a close contact, please do the following for the next 14 days: 1. Take your temperature/your child’s temperature once daily to check for fever (a body temperature of 100.4°F/38°C or higher). 2. Watch for other symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea. 3. Immediately report any symptoms requiring medical attention to the Pennsylvania Department of Health (1-877-724-3258) or your local health department and contact your health care provider. Be sure to inform the provider of you or your child’s possible exposure to a person with COVID-19. 4. You and your child should wear a mask and maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet from any person while outside the home. 5. Practice the following hygiene measures: a. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. b. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. c. Cover any coughs or sneezes with an elbow, not hands. d. Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, and other frequently touched items. 6. Be aware of any persons in your household who may be at higher risk of getting COVID-19, including individuals who are elderly, immunocompromised (e.g., someone who has cancer and is taking chemotherapy), or have another condition or illness such as diabetes or asthma. You or your child should practice physical distancing around those persons. 7. If you are contacted by the Pennsylvania Department of Health or your local health department or its representatives, please cooperate with monitoring and follow all instructions so that other people do not become sick. If you or any members of your household develop symptoms of COVID-19 or have symptoms worsen, notify your local health department or the Pennsylvania Department of Health immediately at 1-877-724-3258 and contact a health care provider. Before seeking medical attention, let the health care provider know about the possible exposure to a case of COVID-19. Please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health website (www.health.pa.gov) for the latest and most accurate information about COVID-19. Sincerely, Tony Miller Administrative Director

It’s that time of year again. Classes will begin at the Career Center on Wednesday August 26th. Even if your home school district starts at a later date, you are required to start attending the Career Center on Wednesday. Just a few reminders: All students will be required to wear a face mask or face shield when you enter the building. All students should enter at door number 36 – the bus entrance and report directly to your class. Do not enter the locker rooms. You should check with your home school district for transportation schedules. Student drivers will be permitted to drive to school on the first day. When you arrive, park in the designated student parking areas in the back parking lot and enter at door # 36. You should see the Safety Coordinator within the first week of school if you plan on driving to the career center. You are also required to obtain permission to drive from your high school principal after the first day of school in your home district. If you have any questions concerning your participation in career center classes, you can contact the school office during regular business hours at 724-662-3000. You are also encouraged to keep an eye on our school website, www.mercerccc.org and our Facebook and Twitter feeds for additional information concerning reopening this year. We also encourage you to download the MCCC app for your Android or Apple smart phone on our webpage. We are going to strive to make this a rewarding year for all of our students. We hope you will strive to make it a great year too! Thank you. See you on Wednesday. Good bye.
