CMASAS is a global school and we value our global learning community. As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) becomes more widespread, education of what the Coronavirus is and what we can do to help prevent its spread is a critical first step in protecting ourselves, our family and our community.
The map below provides a global view for up-to-date information on the number of cases globally and by region.

We have many students around the globe and in Asia, including Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and China. While our students and their families have been fortunate to not have contracted COVID-19 to date, our hearts go out to those who have been impacted.
What are the symptoms of Coronavirus:
Symptoms of the virus may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include:
- Shortness of Breath
While every day brings new developments and additional regions around the globe that are being affected, we wanted to keep everyone informed of best practices in protecting yourself and others from the Corona Virus while doing school online.
The best way to protect yourself is to avoid exposure and take everyday preventative actions to avoid the virus. Preventive actions include:
- Clean/wipe and disinfect nonporous surfaces such as your keyboard, mouse, touchscreens (including cell phones and tablets) frequently, using a regular household spray or wipe such as Clorox wipes. The Corona Virus can live airborne for hours and on surfaces for several days or longer.
- Wash your hands frequently using warm water and anti-bacterial soap. When traveling or out of your home, use an antibacterial hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Other commonsense preventive measures include:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
The following website provides detailed information on how to clean and disinfect households.
