Para: Padres o guardianes de niños que asisten en la Escuela H.T. Jaramillo Elementary,
La Escuela Primaria H.T. Jaramillo está trabajando con el Departamento de Educación Pública de Nuevo México (NMPED) y el Departamento de Salud de Nuevo México (NMDOH) porque un miembro del personal o un estudiante que asiste a nuestra escuela ha dado positivo por COVID-19.
Esta carta es para informarle sobre los próximos pasos necesarios para proteger a su hijo y a nuestra comunidad de COVID-19. Según la guía de NMPED y NMDOH, estamos obligados a investigar quién tuvo "contacto cercano" con el miembro del personal o estudiante que dio positivo para COVID-19. Un "contacto cercano" se define como una persona que estuvo a menos de seis pies durante más de tres minutos de alguien que ha dado positivo por COVID-19 y todo el personal y los estudiantes que estaban en el mismo salón o en el mismo autobús que el individuo infectado. Según NMPED y NMDOH, todo el personal que estaba en "contacto cercano" con el individuo infectado debe ser probado de siete a 10 días después de la exposición de contacto cercano a la persona que haya dado positivo por COVID-19. Se recomienda encarecidamente a todos los estudiantes que estuvieron en contactos cercanos que se hagan la prueba. Tanto el personal como los contactos cercanos de los estudiantes deben permanecer en cuarentena en casa durante 14 días, independientemente del resultado de la prueba.
Mientras tanto, si usted o su hijo comienzan a desarrollar síntomas de COVID-19, que son fiebre, escalofríos, tos, falta de respiración o dificultad respiratoria, fatiga, dolores musculares o corporales, dolor de cabeza, nueva pérdida de olor o sabor, dolor de garganta, congestión o escurrimiento nasal, náuseas o vómitos, diarrea [https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html], llame a su proveedor de atención médica o a la línea directa COVID-19 al 1-855-600-3453.
Es importante que llame con anticipación a su proveedor de atención médica antes de presentarlo al consultorio del médico, clínica, atención de urgencia o sala de emergencias para que puedan estar preparados para su llegada. También pueden derivarlo a una clínica de pruebas.
Las áreas de la escuela (incluyendo los autobuses) en las cual el individuo que fue dado positivo por COVID-19 estuvo serán limpiadas y desinfectadas y se le notificara a aquellos que estuvieron en estrecho contacto del caso positivo.
Por favor, continúe enviando a su hijo a la escuela a menos que se le notifique que su hijo fue un contacto cercano de una persona que ha dado positivo por COVID-19, su hijo desarrolla síntomas de COVID-19, o su hijo tiene una prueba de COVID-19 positiva. Del mismo modo, los miembros de su hogar no necesitan estar en cuarentena a menos que su hijo haga pruebas positivas para COVID-19 o que los miembros de su hogar sean identificados como un contacto cercano de una persona que ha dado positivo por COVID-19.
Puede llamar a Deborah Baca at 505-966-1271 o NMDOH al (505) 827-0006, si tiene preguntas.
Gracias por su apoyo en estos esfuerzos.

Sinceramente
Lawrence Sanchez

To: Parents or Guardians of children who attend H. T. Jaramillo Elementary School,
H. T. Jaramillo Elementary School is working with the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) and New Mexico’s Department of Health (NMDOH) because a staff member at our facility or a child who attends our school has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on campus on November 13, 2020.
This letter is to inform you about the next steps necessary to protect your child and our community from COVID-19. Per guidance from both NMPED and NMDOH, we are required to investigate to see who had “close contact” with the staff member or student who tested positive for COVID-19. A “close contact” is defined as being closer than six feet for more than three minutes to a person who is positive for COVID-19 and all staff and students who were in the same classroom or on the same bus as the infected individual. According to NMPED and NMDOH, all staff who were in “close contact” with the infected individual must be tested seven to 10 days after close contact exposure to the positive COVID-19 individual. All students who were close contacts are strongly encouraged to be tested. Both staff and student close contacts must self-quarantine at home for 14 days, regardless of the test result.
In the meantime, if you or your child begin to develop symptoms of COVID-19, which are fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of smell or taste, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea [https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019- ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html], please call your healthcare provider or the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-855-600-3453.
It is important that you call ahead to your healthcare provider before presenting to the physician’s office, clinic, urgent care or emergency room so that they can be prepared for your arrival. They may also refer you to a testing clinic.
Areas of the school (including buses) in which the COVID-19 positive individual spent time will be cleaned and disinfected and those who were close contacts of the positive case will be notified.
Please continue to send your child to school unless you are notified that your child was a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual, your child develops COVID-19 symptoms, or your child has a positive COVID-19 test. Likewise, your household members do not need to quarantine unless your child tests positive for COVID-19 or your household members are identified as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual.
You may call Deborah Baca at 505-966-1271 or NMDOH at (505) 827-0006, if you have questions.
Thank you for your support in these efforts.

Sincerely,
Lawrence Sanchez
