    Guidance from the Colorado Department of Health & Environment is to continue best practices around hand-washing and disease control as you would during flu season.

    Continue implementing the same practices as you would during flu season.

  1. Hand washing, hand washing, hand washing or, at minimum, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol content, however, know it is less effective than soap and water. We cannot stress enough the importance and effectiveness of frequent hand washing for at least 20 seconds to keep people healthy;
  2. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Try to imagine the whole world covered in a fine layer of filth. We don't want that to end up in our mouths, so wash your hands before you eat, touch your eyes, nose and mouth.
  3. Routine cleaning and disinfecting are important - wiping down frequently touched surfaces is a good idea. This is also true for our cell phones. A regular household disinfecting type of wipe or spray works.
  4. Stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and properly dispose of tissues.
  5. Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms (Keep a distance of at least 10 feet).


The Colorado Department of Health and Environment has guidance on when children and staff should stay home from school or child care. The main reasons are:

1. The child or staff member does not feel well enough to take part in usual activities. For example, a child is overly tired, fussy or will not stop crying.
2. A child needs more care than teachers and staff can give while still caring for the other children.
3. The symptom or illness is on this list, and staying home is required.

For the complete list of symptoms and illnesses, check out the “How Sick is Too Sick” (En Español) guidelines from CDPHE for school communities.
