    Every student deserves a School Nurse

     Cada niño merece una enfermera escolar

    School nurses can continue to be proactive by advising students, families, and staff to:

    • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Find additional CDC resources on how to clean and disinfect schools.
    • Wash your hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. For more guidance, see the CDC: When and How to Wash Your Hands. If you cannot wash your hands, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
