Cover your Coughs and Sneezes

Cough Etiquette

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your upper sleeve or elbow, when you cough or sneeze.  Throw used tissues immediately in a lined wastebasket, then wash your hands using soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer.

Remind any children in your care to follow these recommendations and support them to do so.
