Mabton School District wants to share its preparedness, prevention and information plans with students, staff, and families regarding 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Washington State Department of Health confirms that there is no evidence that COVID-19 is spreading in Washington at this time, and the immediate risk to the general public in Washington and the United States is considered to be low.

The Department of Health advises school districts to take the same preventative measures it normally would to prevent the spread of viruses during the regular cold and flu season. Common preventative measures recommended for students and staff include:

  • Stay home when you are sick and/or running a fever.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after you blow your nose. If hands are visibly dirty, use soap and water to clean hands.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and clean hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer (if soap and water are not readily available).

  • Get a flu shot during the flu season.


The District’s custodial and maintenance programs will continue to emphasize and implement best practices in cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing our schools.

District officials are in regular contact with Yakima County Health District officials and have reviewed emergency response plans should COVID-19 arise locally. If this were to occur, the district’s emergency response plan will follow the direction and guidance of local and state health officials and will immediately be communicated with parents and the greater community.

More information about COVID-19 can be accessed at the links below, or by calling the Washington State Department of Health at 1-800-525-0127, or our local Yakima County Health District at 509-575-4040.

El Distrito Escolar de Mabton quiere compartir sus planes de preparación, prevención e información con los estudiantes, el personal y las familias con respecto al Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).


El Departamento de Salud del Estado de Washington confirma que no hay evidencia de que COVID-19 se esté propagando en Washington en este momento, y el riesgo inmediato para el público en general en Washington y los Estados Unidos se considera bajo.


El Departamento de Salud aconseja a los distritos escolares que tomen las mismas medidas preventivas que normalmente tomarían para prevenir la propagación de virus durante la temporada regular de resfriados y gripe. Las medidas preventivas comunes recomendadas para estudiantes y personal incluyen:


  • Permanezca en casa cuando esté enfermo o tenga fiebre.
  • Lávese las manos con frecuencia con agua y jabón por al menos 20 segundos, especialmente después de ir al baño, antes de comer y después de sonarse la nariz.
  • Si las manos están visiblemente sucias, use agua y jabón para limpiar sus manos.
  • Si no hay agua y jabón disponibles, use un desinfectante para manos con base de   alcohol con al menos 60% de alcohol.
  • Evite tocarse los ojos, la nariz y la boca con las manos sin lavar
  • Cubra la tos o los estornudos con un pañuelo desechable, luego tírelo a la basura y lávese las manos con agua y jabón o desinfectante para manos (si no hay agua y jabón disponibles).
  • Vacúnese contra la gripe durante la temporada de gripe.


Los programas de mantenimiento y aseo del Distrito continuarán enfatizando e implementando las mejores prácticas para limpiar, desinfectar y esterilizar nuestras escuelas.


Los funcionarios del distrito están en contacto regular con los funcionarios de Distrito de Salud del Condado de Yakima y han revisado los planes de respuesta ante emergencias en caso de que surja COVID-19 localmente. Si esto ocurriera, el plan de respuesta de emergencia del distrito seguirá las instrucciones y la orientación de los funcionarios de salud locales y estatales y se comunicará de inmediato con los padres y la comunidad en general.
