Here are a few reminders of things you can to do help prevent the transmission of communicable diseases:

  • 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.

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

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • If your child is sick please keep them home follow the guidance listed on this quick screening guide for parents.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • If a tissue is not available we encourage sneezing into a sleeve or elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
