The research findings currently indicate that children have a lower rate of symptomatic infections than adults. The latest World Health Organisation (WHO) report states that the risk of transmission from child to child seems low, “For most Covid-19 infections in children, an adult was the source of infection”.
Your child will be hand washing regularly throughout the day – please talk to them about thorough hand cleaning and hygiene expectations. Videos demonstrating these can be found on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TOno60UBLg
- Monitor your child’s health and keep them home from school if they are ill.
- Teach and model good hygiene practices for your children:
- Explain that they should wash their hands with soap and water frequently. As a minimum, children should wash their hands, on leaving home, before and after eating, after using any shared equipment / resources, after using the toilet, after sneezing or coughing and on returning home
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitiser (with 60-70% alcohol content). Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Ensure waste (such as used tissues) is safely collected, stored and disposed of.
- Cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and avoid touching your face, eyes, mouth, nose.
