Infectious Diseases Resources for Secondary Educators

The daily mix of students and staff provides numerous opportunities for germs to be passed between everyone in these settings, especially from child to child. Children are natural explorers of their environments, play closely together and readily share their possessions, food and germs.

Educators play a key role in preventing the spread of common childhood diseases by educating children and their caregivers on infection prevention and control practices.

We offer a variety of services to support student health and infection prevention, including information related to common childhood illnesses, a list of reportable diseases and notification processes, and support with infection prevention and control in schools.
