  • Older adults and people who have serious underlying medical conditions are at highest risk of getting sick from COVID-19.
    • If others in your home are at particularly high risk for severe illness from COVID-19, consider extra precautions to separate your child from those people.
    • If you are unable to stay home with your child during school dismissals, carefully consider who might be best positioned to provide childcare. If someone at higher risk for COVID-19 will be providing care (older adult, such as a grandparent or someone with a serious underlying medical condition), limit your children’s contact with other people.
    • Consider postponing visits or trip to see older family members and grandparents. Connect virtually or by writing letters and sending via mail.
