Discourage children and teens from gathering in other public places while school is dismissed to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
This is a new virus and we are still learning about it, but so far, there does not seem to be a lot of illness in children. Most illness, including serious illness, is happening in adults of working age and older adults. With schools dismissed, use alternative childcare arrangements, if needed.
If your child/children become sick with COVID-19, notify their childcare facility or school.
