STAY INFORMED TO KEEP YOUR CHILD HEALTHY

 

As parents and childcare providers become increasingly aware of the effects of serious viral illnesses, the North Georgia Health District encourages us to also increase our awareness of how to prevent the spread of these viruses, know what signs and symptoms to look for and know what to do if we suspect there is an illness, especially if the suspected illness could be a viral disease that needs immediate medical attention.

For more information on illness prevention, please see the Georgia Department of Public Health website at:
