Due to updated research, we are RESUMING use of stuffed animals and scarves. Use of these items will continue to be practiced with extra care such as: All objects-- books, instruments, games, stuffed animals, scarves, etc. will be disinfected and/or quarantined as necessary between each session.

Possible symptoms include: Fever or chills/Cough/Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing/Fatigue/Muscle or body aches/Headache/New loss of taste or smell/Sore throat/Congestion or runny nose/Nausea or vomiting/Diarrhea. Referencing CDC, you can be around others after 10 days since symptoms first appeared, and 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications, and Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving (Note: Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation). Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results. People who are severely ill with COVID-19 might need to stay home longer than 10 days and up to 20 days after symptoms first appeared.
