How children with asthma can avoid COVID 19 in schools

How children with asthma can avoid COVID 19 in schools

Social distancing remains the best technique for preventing COVID 19. However, it is beyond imagination when children must return to schools.  

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has delivered a helpful guide, the “COVID 19 and Asthma Toolkit for Schools” to enable teachers, school medical care networks and families of students living with asthma follow the prescribed procedures to remain healthy as they return to schools.  They’ve suggested that students and staff with asthma who return to schools must have their condition under control because they’ll be facing a seasonal asthma plague on top of a significant viral pandemic simultaneously. 

AAFA’s ‘COVID-19 and Asthma Toolkit for Schools’ creates a guide for:   

1. Acquiring new COVID 19 school arrangements to support students and staff with asthma.  
2. Making asthma-friendly school spaces that prevent the spread of COVID 19. 
3. Specific COVID 19 conventions for school medical nurses and staff overseeing asthma.  
4. Creating single asthma management plans for each student including having additional prescriptions and tools on-hand during crises like the COVID 19 pandemic. 

In some cases, regardless of how we attempt, things get out of hand. When you realize that a kid is sick, contact the medical service provider. The sooner the scene is dealt with, the better are the chances of keeping it from deteriorating.   

1. Contact the healthcare provider - EduHealth student health records software platform will give you quick access to pertinent data like the students’ health, medication and medical care provider data. However, if you figure out the child might be infectious, call the health service provider first to avoid spreading the disease to others.  
2. Tell the healthcare providers the student's symptoms. 
3. If you think the child has been exposed to the flu or is indicating symptoms of the flu, share that data with the healthcare provider. 
4. Let them know the medications you’ve given the kid. 
5. Follow the school’s asthma activity plan. 
6. Make sure the kid gets a lot of rest, drinks enough water and has healthy food. Ensure that they avoid the asthma triggers.
