At Montana Academy, you can expect to see our students and staff cleaning frequently touched surfaces
more often, including doorknobs, bathrooms, stations, phones, handrails, throughout the academy, and

from frequently touching doorknobs. You may also see students and staff wearing face masks, gloves,
and glasses. This is for the protection of guests receiving services for skin, nails, massage, and hair
services that are close to fewer than six feet. Hand sanitizer is stationed in every section of the
academy, and it is our recommendation students, staff, and guests hand sanitized.

large family of viruses common in people and many different species of animals. The virus causes a
respiratory disease called COVID-19. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include fever,
cough, and shortness of breath.

The CDC recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases,
including:

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
• Stay home when you are sick
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the
bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
