July means families are preparing to go back to school and making sure kids are healthy is a top priority for everyone! Make sure your staff and patients are up to date on how to stay ready for their first day! Be sure to read up on the Mayo Clinic’s tips for returning to school during and after COVID-19 https://mayocl.in/3t0A5d4. There are many common sense suggestions such as social distancing and masks, but also be sure to:
Clean and disinfect frequently touched items such as doorknobs, keyboards, and phones.
Practice handwashing at home and explain why it’s important to wash especially before and after eating, coughing and sneezing.
Develop daily routines that encourage healthy practices like having hand sanitizer and washing hands.
