Keeping children and the adults who care for them healthy is a goal of educators, families, public health officials, and health professionals. Children rely on adult caregivers to incorporate and teach them routines and behaviors to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases including influenza (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and COVID-19 in schools and at home. Many preventive strategies are simple, safe, and effective, allowing you to guard against a variety of potentially serious illnesses.
