Staff and children (as developmentally appropriate) should all be taught and asked to follow these steps that prevent the transmission of infections such as influenza:
1) Stay home if you are sick, especially with a fever
2) Wash hands frequently, especially after coughing or sneezing
3) Cover your coughs and sneezes into a tissue or the inside of your elbow, not into your bare hands.
4) Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
