As you may be aware, the number of Covid-19 infections in Ulsan has been rising recently. I have been asked to send out this urgent message by local medical authorities to increase the awareness of our school community and thus help prevent possible infection in our midst.
If somebody is identified by the medical authorities as “a person who has been in close contact with a confirmed Covid-19 patient,” the person should self-isolate for 14 days, regardless of the symptoms. If that happens, all family members who have been in contact with that person should also self-isolate.
If somebody who has been to an area of confirmed infection shows symptoms such as coughing or a sore throat, or if a doctor suspects that such a person has been infected by the virus regardless of his/her visit to the area of infection, that person and all family members should self-isolate until the test result are released. However, if that person tests negative, he/she or his/her family can immediately resume normal activities.
Should you or your family members fall under any of the above cases, please inform the school immediately so that we can take the necessary action promptly. Thank you for your understanding in this regard.
