Taking Precautions during Flu Season 

Parents, the dreaded Flu season is almost here! EFBC want to keep your children and families healthy. According to the CDC, the best way to prevent influenza infection is to get a flu vaccine. There is no vaccine available for norovirus. We ask all our childcare staff and connection group leaders to get vaccinated for the flu each year.

Tips to keep you and your child healthy:

  • Talk to your child about practicing good health habits
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after restroom use, after handling a child who has a nasal drip, cough, rash, or attending to a child’s diapering need
  • Cover mouth and nose into the inside of the elbow or with a tissue when sneezing or coughing and dispose of the tissue immediately into the trash
  • Avoid touching the “T” zone – eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid sharing drinks, water bottles, eating utensils and cell phones
  • Avoid contact with others who are sick
  • If your child is not feeling well, keep him home away from others
  • Even a low-grade fever (under 101 degrees) may indicate an undiagnosed illness
  • At home, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, toys and commonly shared items. Wash contaminated clothing or linen immediately

In the preschool and children’s area of EFBC, we encourage good hygiene in all rooms, even the littlest one’s hands are washed. We provide waterless hand sanitizer in all rooms and encourage volunteers to wash with soap and water prior to serving with children. Teachers are alert to children who may be ill and will direct the parent to visit with the coordinator prior to be placed in any preschool or children’s room. All toys and equipment in these rooms are disinfected with Sanivex throughout each session and after, including cabinet doors and the door knobs of the rooms.

If you find your child has been diagnosed with the flu, norovirus, or other contagious illnesses, please contact the childhood ministry office and we can alert other families. This will help keep families healthy and ready to come to church to worship.
