While school is out, children should not have in-person interactions with children from other households. If children are playing outside their own homes, it is essential that they remain 6 feet from anyone who is not in their own household.
Current data suggests children with COVID-19 may have only mild symptoms. However, they can still pass this virus onto others who may be at higher risk, including older adults and people who have serious underlying medical conditions.
To help children maintain social connections while social distancing, assist your children with supervised phone calls or video chats with their friends.
