Each flu season it’s key for parents, teachers and children to understand how they can prevent the spread of flu and what do if they think they have the flu or are caring for someone who is ill. Local schools and childcare providers play a critical role in preventing the spread of the flu and keeping children, as well as those who teach and care for them, healthy.

This page has resources for schools and childcare providers to prevent the spread of seasonal flu in their communities and ensure parents, children and employees have the information they need to stay healthy.
