We are working closely with the Cuyahoga County Health Department and anyone identified as a close contact will be notified by the health department as a part of COVID-19 investigation.
If CCBH contacts you as part of a COVID-19 investigation, please cooperate fully to ensure the safety and health of our entire community. It is also important that we show kindness and understanding to those who may be identified as a case of COVID-19 or as a close contact.
Spread of COVID-19 is currently happening in our community. This is why it is so important for all students and staff to adhere to the key public health prevention strategies to reduce the chance for transmission of COVID-19, including:
Wearing a face mask
Social distancing of at least 6 feet
Frequent hand washing with soap and water
Hand sanitizing when soap and water are not available
Staying home when you do not feel well
Disinfecting high-touch surfaces regularly
Not sharing food, drinks, cups and utensils
Avoiding large gatherings of 10 or more people
