Preventing the Spread of Infection

If your child has been exposed to one of the following, please report directly to the nurse’s station as soon as possible upon your arrival:
  • Chickenpox
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • MRSA

Please do your part to help prevent the spread of infections by staying in your room, once assigned. Use the alcohol-based hand sanitizer often and cough or sneeze into your sleeve rather than your hand. Always sanitize your hands after coughing or sneezing, wiping your child’s nose, changing a diaper or cleaning up after your child if they throw up. If children have any respiratory symptoms (like a cough, cold, or runny nose) they will need to wear a mask during their visit.
