HELP STOP SPREAD OF COVID-19 IN CHILDREN

Ways to Protect Children from getting and spreading COVID-19:

LIMIT YOUR CHILD’S INTERACTION WITH PEOPLE AT HIGHEST RISK OF SEVERE ILLNESS FROM COVID-19
-Separate your child from others in your household who have an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
-Carefully consider who might be best to provide childcare if you are unable to care for your child.
-Limit your child’s contact with other people if someone at higher risk for COVID-19 will be providing care.
-Postpone visits or trips to see grandparents, older family members and family members who are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19
WEAR A MASK
Children 2 years of age and older should wear a mask.
CLEAN AND DISINFECT
-Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily
-Wash items, including washable plush toys as needed
CONSIDER CHANGING TRAVEL PLANS
-Because travel increases your child’s chances of coming in contact with others who may have COVID-19 and your child spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to others if they are infected, staying home is the best way to protect your child and others from getting sick.
