Flu Precautions

The following are precautions we are taking at the Louisiana Children’s Museum:

  • Hand Sanitizers: Located on each floor in exhibit areas
  • Museum Sanitizing: We’re taking extra measures to ensure the commonly touched surfaces are disinfected throughout the day.

We are asking that our visitors do their part as well:

  • Please encourage good hygiene at home and remind children about hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Teach your children not to share personal items like drinks, food or utensils, and to cover their coughs and sneezes appropriately.
  • Be familiar with the symptoms of the seasonal flu. Flu usually comes on suddenly. The symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Symptoms also may include diarrhea and vomiting. Many people recover with little or no medical intervention, but you should contact your doctor with questions and concerns and to determine the need for evaluation and appropriate care.
