    • Description:
      This document provides guidance to help decrease the spread of influenza (flu) among children in early childhood programs and among early childhood providers during the 2009–2010 flu season. The guidance expands upon earlier guidance documents by providing a menu of tools that health officials, Head Start, and other early childhood and child care providers can choose from based on conditions in their area. It recommends actions to take now, during the 2009–2010 flu season, suggests strategies to consider if CDC determines that the flu is becoming more severe, and provides a checklist for decision-making at the local level. Explanations for the recommended strategies and suggestions on how to use them are included in the Technical Report. Based on the severity of 2009 H1N1 flu-related illness thus far, this guidance recommends that children and early childhood providers with flu-like illness remain home until 24 hours after resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications. For the purpose of this document, “early childhood programs” will refer to center-based and home-based child care programs, Head Start programs, and other early childhood programs providing care for children in group settings. The guidance applies to all early childhood programs, even if they provide services for older children.
