What else should my family know about social distancing, especially with kids?
When you’re social distancing, you can still keep in direct contact with the people in your home, as long as everyone is healthy.
In many places, schools and day cares are closed temporarily. When experts recommend staying home and away from other people, it’s important to take this seriously and follow instructions as best you can. Even if your child does not get very sick from Covid 19, they could still pass it along to others who could get very sick.
It is also important to avoid:
- Play dates, even in small numbers
- Group sports
Children can still play outside, but should be careful to stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from other people.
