Tips for healthy parenting during this time of unprecedented events.

Posted by Elly Nguyen on

Across the world, due to the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), children are affected by physical distancing, quarantines, and nationwide school closures. Here are a few tips recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on how to keep children healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak

Teach and reinforce everyday preventive actions

  • Handwashing: Parents and caretakers play an important role in teaching children to wash their hands. Explain that handwashing can keep them healthy and stop the virus from spreading to others. Using a proper hand sanitizer like our Medlee ones with 70-75% alcohol content helps kill germs and bacteria. 
  • Mandatory Mask or Face Covering: Put on a mask for them while in enclosed common areas, in apartment buildings and condominiums, indoor public spaces. The mask or face covering should cover their nose, mouth and chin, without gapping. Our medical kid's masks are strongly recommended

Help your child stay active

  • Encourage your child to play outdoors—it’s great for physical and mental health. Take a walk with your child or go on a bike ride.
  • Use indoor activity breaks (like stretch breaks or dance breaks) throughout the day to help your child stay healthy and focused.
