Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Updated: March 14, 12 am
There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the campus of Carrollton Baptist Temple and Carroll County Christian Academy.
CBT/CCCA is actively monitoring the growth and impact of the COVID-19 virus around the country and in Ohio in particular. Both the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have indicated that the immediate health risk is low in the United States, but much remains unknown about how the virus will spread and how it will impact the health of those infected. We are continually evaluating our current situation and are ensuring appropriate response plans are in place and ready for activation if necessary.
The current service schedule for CBT will remained unchanged as of March 13.
Guidance provided by the WHO, CDC, and the Ohio Department of Health is informing these discussions and plans. In response to the situational changes, we are announcing that CCCA is moving all of our classes to an online-only, correspondence format for the next few weeks.
It is important to remember that preventing the spread of any communicable illness includes practicing simple but important personal health routines:
Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds with soapy water
Use alcohol-based sanitizer (ideally 60% alcohol) if soap and water are not available, but wash your hands with soap and water as often as possible
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue directly into the trash
Clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces such as phones, door handles, banisters, railings, etc.
Get adequate rest
Avoid contact with those who are infected or are known to have been in recent contact with someone who is infected
Stay home if you are ill (coughing, runny nose, fever, etc.) regardless of whether or not the underlying cause is believed to be coronavirus
