COVID-19: Suggested Points to Emphasize When Talking to Children
  • Adults at home and school are taking care of your health and safety. If you have concerns, please talk to an adult you trust. 
  • Not everyone will get the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. School and health officials are being especially careful to make sure as few people as possible get sick. 
  • It is important that all students treat each other with respect and not jump to conclusions about who may or may not have COVID-19. 
  • There are things you can do to stay healthy and avoid spreading the disease:
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. 
    • Wash hands often with soap and water (20 seconds). 
    • If you don’t have soap, use hand sanitizer (60–95% alcohol based). 
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
