Tips About Hand Washing and Prevention
With the recently elevated concern regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to take a moment to reinforce typical infectious disease precautions. As with any illness, such as the flu, the Weld County Department of Health recommends the following precautions for everyone:
- Remain at home if you are sick. Keep your child home if they are sick (except to visit a health care professional).
- Remember to wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with soap and water. Instruct children to do the same.
- Refrain from touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. Please instruct and remind your child to do the same.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Remember to cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Instruct and remind your child of the same. Wash hands after disposing of soiled tissues.
- All family members should get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals to ensure a healthy immune system.
