COVID 19: Public Health Guidance for Childcare Settings March 24, 2020

http://www.bccdc.ca/Health-Info-Site/Documents/COVID19_PublicHealthGuidanceChildcareFacilities.pdf

 If you’re ill – stay at home.

 Within childcare settings, children and staff will often have influenza or other respiratory viruses with symptoms similar to COVID-19 (i.e., influenza). For this reason, all children and staff who are ill with fever, have cold, influenza or infectious respiratory symptoms of any kind need to stay home. If children and staff have symptoms, self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days from the onset of symptoms and until symptoms have completely resolved. If you are at all unsure of your status, the BC Centre for Disease Control’s online assessment tool can help you assess whether you should stay home or not.

Six steps to proper handwashing

  1. Wet hands with warm running water.
  2. Apply a small amount of liquid soap. Antibacterial soap is not required.
  3. Rub hands together for at least 20 seconds (sing the ABC’s). Rub palms, backs of hands, between fingers and under nails and creating a lather.
  4. Rinse off all soap with running water.
  5. Dry hands with a clean, disposable towel.
  6. Discard the used towel in the waste container.
