Therefore, everyone needs to continue practicing health safety measures for ourselves and our loved ones, particularly our children.
This means children around the country are still at home.
While at home it is good for children to stay connected with their friends without spreading the COVID-19 virus.
Children with COVID-19 may only have mild symptoms, but they can still pass this virus on to others who may be at higher risk, including older adults and people who have serious underlying medical conditions.
These safety measures should be used by children (children under 2 should not wear masks) along with adults as the COVID-19 continues to spread and infect youth.
