Help Children Learn at Home

Help children learn at home. To help you get the support you need to facilitate at-home learning, stay in touch with your child’s school; ask about available school services; and create a schedule and routine for learning at home. Remember, there is no “right” way for your child to learn at home. Do what works for you and your family, and make sure to prioritize your own well-being so that you stay healthy and feel ready to address your child’s needs in education and beyond.

Using Gyms, Fitness Centers, or Studios

Exercise is important for physical and mental health and should be continued for healthy living, especially during the coronavirus crisis. However, you should take precautions to make you less likely to get or spread COVID-19. Keep at least 6 feet away from other people; select a facility that requires all staff and attendees to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times; limit high-intensity activities to the outdoors; and wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, before and after using machines.

COVID-19 Vaccines

Currently, two vaccines are authorized and recommended to prevent COVID-19:

COVID-19 vaccination will help keep you from getting COVID-19 and is a safer way to help build protection. Wearing masks and social distancing help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system so it will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. It also may protect people around you, especially those more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19. The combination of getting vaccinated and following CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.

After You Travel

You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread the virus to others. You and your travel companions (including children) may pose a risk to your family, friends, and community after your travel. Consider getting tested with a viral test 3–5 days after your trip and reduce non-essential activities for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don’t get tested, consider reducing non-essential activities for 10 days. Also take these actions for 14 days after you return from travel to protect others from getting COVID-19:

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who did not travel with you
  • Wear a mask when you are in shared spaces outside of your home
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness
