Infectious Disease Monitoring Update
Our students’ health and safety are the top priorities of New Caney ISD. When issues of concern are brought to our attention we want to share that information with our community.
We have been made aware that an employee of our District traveled on the Carnival Cruise ship Magic last week.
The lab technician from a Dallas area hospital who voluntarily quarantined herself on the ship has been cleared by Galveston County Health Officials and the Department of State Health Services. The public health assessment is based on the fact that the person was confirmed to have remained symptom free and does not pose a public health threat.
Based on this information from Galveston County Health Officials and the Department of State Health Services, the employee of our District poses no risk to students or staff members of New Caney ISD and she has been allowed to return to work. We will continue to keep you updated on all information that becomes available.
Texas Education Agency:
With the recent heightened awareness and concern over infectious diseases, NCISD would like to take this opportunity to let you know we are closely monitoring events concerning Flu season, Enterovirus-D68, and Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) and will continue to take all necessary precautions at the direction of the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as our local health authority.
