I live in San Diego and own a home daycare. With the swine flu going around should i close my daycare down? Should I remind the parents about the swine flu? How do i get information about school /child care closesures in my area. Im sorry I just couldnt find anything online at the moment.
No. There is a flu "pandemic" every year: it’s called "flu season." Swine flu affects significantly less people than that normal flu.
If widespread cases of the flu are reason to shut down a daycare center, you should have done it a long time ago.
As long as you practice basic hygiene, you and everyone around you will continue to be at extremely low risk of contracting this illness. Even if you don’t, chances are still extremely low.
