Following up on its excellent guides for businesses and higher education, the CDC recently released newChildcare_Toolkit  guidance for child care providers to help them prepare for the upcoming flu season.   Child care providers, both center-based and home-based, are critically important partners in helping to limit the spread of flu.  H1N1 flu disproportionately impacted young people during the outbreak in the spring.  The expected resurgence of the virus this fall will likely continue this trend.  

The toolkit for child care providers includes: 

  • Question & Answers on H1N1
  • Fact sheets for child care providers and for parents
  • Prevention posters informing parents to keep sick kids home
  • Template letters for parents
