What signs should I watch for to determine if its safe to bring my child to community day?
Ask yourself these questions:
Does my child feel well enough to participate in the program’s activities?
Sick children, who are lethargic or whiny, are often giving clues that they would be better off resting at home.
Did the doctor diagnose a contagious illness?
Illnesses such as the flu, pink eye, scabies, head lice, impetigo, strep, whooping cough, Covid-19 and chicken pox are highly contagious.
In this case, your child should remain isolated from others until the risk of passing the illness on has passed.
Does your child have any of the following symptoms?
Fever above 100 degrees, uncontrollable coughing, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, headache, nausea or vomiting, persistent crying or lethargy? Have you come into contact with anyone confirmed Covid-positive?
*Please refrain from exposing the child to others until symptoms have subsided and Covid-negative for a minimum of 4 days.*
