Experts suggest that parents should remind or help children to maintain good personal and environmental hygiene habits, such as ventilation of home, washing hands frequently especially after contact with respiratory secretions (such as after sneezing), and a balanced diet, moderate exercise and adequate rest. It is necessary to wear a mask at home or outdoor if you get flu to avoid infecting others.
Schools and child care institutions should maintain air circulation in classrooms, dormitories, canteens, etc., do daily disinfection and health education, continue to do morning and noon inspections and monitoring of absence due to illness to discover fever cases and register and isolate them timely and ensure that the epidemic of concentrated fever was detected early, reported early, and disposed early. Sick students and teachers should avoid taking classes and avoid participating in group activities and entering public places during rest time. After the epidemic situation occurs in the schools and child care institutions, it is necessary to implement various prevention and control measures strictly under the guidance of professional institutions to prevent the spread of the epidemic.
