It might feel like we’ve just eased the kids back into school, but lo and behold, it’s school holiday time already!

With lockdown restrictions easing around the country, more and more attractions are re-opening their doors, and they need us now more than ever to visit to help them recover from the strange times we’ve just been through.

How can parents best protect their family against COVID-19 these school holidays

There is currently no vaccine to prevent the coronavirus COVID-19. The best protection is to avoid being exposed to this virus, and practising good hygiene when out and about.

You can keep your family healthy and help prevent illness by:

  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 30 seconds, especially before eating or touching your face. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
  • Keep your kids away from others who are sick or keep them home if they are ill.
  • If you are sick, avoiding contact with others and staying more than 1.5 metres away from people
  • Try to stop children from touching their mouth, eyes and nose.
  • Teach children to cough and sneeze into their arm or elbow, not their hands.
  • When using a tissue, throw it away immediately after use and wash hands.
  • Clean and disinfect household objects and surfaces in your home.
  • If you have a confirmed case, you need to self-quarantine to prevent it spreading to other people.
  • Keeping a distance of 1.5 metres between you and other people whenever possible

While coronavirus is of concern, it is important to remember that most people displaying symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or tiredness are likely suffering with a cold or other respiratory illness – not coronavirus.
