***Remind your child to wash his/her hands after toileting, coughing, sneezing, and before eating. Encourage him/her to cough and sneeze into a tissue. The best way to prevent the spread of disease and illness is thorough hand-washing. Use a hand sanitizing product if soap and water are not immediately available.***
