The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019–20 coronavirus a pandemic on March 11, 2020.
A pandemic is the worldwide spread of a new disease. Person-to-person spread is observed in multiple countries around the world at the same time. Pulaski Community School District is monitoring the CDC response and working with state organizations to provide resources and services to students and families.
COVID-19 is a viral respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus that has not been found in people before. According to the CDC, patients with confirmed COVID-19 have mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Some patients have other symptoms including muscle aches, headache, sore throat, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
Governor Tony Evers and Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary-designee Andrea Palm issued a Safer at Home order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
There’s currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Social distancing -- the practice of keeping at least six feet apart from others and avoiding direct physical contact -- is the only effective means of slowing the rate of infection.
While some people may be worried or have concerns about COVID-19, it is important to not let fear lead to social stigma toward others. Stigma can lead to a reluctance to seek and/or accept necessary help and support. Education challenges inaccurate information. We encourage you to take the time to understand the facts.
A message from Governor Tony Evers:
Prevent the Spread
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about COVID-19 and how it spreads.
