Lake Forest School District 67 and Lake Forest High School District 115 are being proactive regarding our response to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States. We are in contact with local health officials regarding area preparations and ready to work together in the event of an outbreak in our region and community. We are also monitoring the Center for Disease Control, Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Lake County Health Department for the most recent information.
To Prevent the Spread of Illness
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- If no tissue is available, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
- Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
