March 19, 2020 - Guidance for Families with Children on Social Distancing


Thursday, March 19, 2020

COVID-19 symptoms in children tend to be very mild, which makes it easier to spread. Young children will also have a harder time understanding the concept of social distancing and should therefore avoid areas with other children who are not members of their household. DC Health recommends that parents help their children play and exercise in a way that helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.  Additional details can be found in this document.
