COVID-19 Safe Practices & Helpful Tips

Safe Practices:
As recommended by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Social Distancing
    • This means that you stay physically away from each other not only to protect yourself but to protect others who may have underlying health conditions. Social distancing measures can make a serious impact when they’re implemented early, so that, over time, all patients get the resources they need. - "Discourage children and teens from gathering in other public places while school is dismissed to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community" CDC - Click Here for more information

  • Kids are watching, let's model resilience, not panic 
  • Walk your neighbor's dog if they can't leave their home 
  • Donate to your local food bank 
  • Remind kids "This is something for grown-ups to take care of, and they are taking care of it!"
  • Many kids thrive on rhythms, structure, and routines
  • Buy gift cards to places you plan to visit when things settle down
