• When to Keep Your Child Home from School

    The ACHD recommends students and families take the same precautions recommended during the flu season.

    • Follow your pediatrician’s orders. If your child is told to stay home, keep him or her home.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues, or cough or sneeze into your inner elbow.
    • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. If not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
    • Get a flu vaccination.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
    • Avoid people who are sick and practice social distancing.
