Our current administrator insists that kids should sneeze/cough into their hands!
I was talking to her about how I am putting together a presentation to do in the classes about the role of the school nurse, and some health topics like hand washing and lice. I mentioned the "vampire sneeze", sneezing into your sleeve. And she says "No No No! They need to sneeze into their hands. They can wash their hands or use hand sanitizer. Teacher's grab kids by their arms all the time and then the teacher will be touching that!"
I tried to politely disagree, but she was adamant. I am tempted to include a screen capture from the CDC website on cough/sneeze etiquette in my presentation...
Can you imagine kids with colds getting up to wash their hands or use sanitizer EVERY TIME THEY SNEEZE!? Or touching all their friends and objects with snotty hands!? UGH!!!
