The Bureau of Child Care (BCC) would like to remind parents and child care providers about the steps they can take to help prevent illness:

Children and the Flu:

  • Flu vaccinations are still available and recommended for anyone 6 months and older.
  • Wash your hands properly and frequently.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, preferably with your arm or a tissue.
  • Stay home from school/work when you are sick to help prevent the spread of germs.
