—Keep your child at home if sick with any illness

—If your child is sick, keep them at home and contact your healthcare provider

—Talk with your employer about sick leave and telework options in case you need to stay home with your child. Consider planning for alternate childcare arrangements.

School Dismissal Childcare Program

—Read or watch local media sources that report school dismissals or stay in touch with your school.

—Talk to your school about options for digital and distance learning

—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
