It’s been an incredibly challenging time for everyone during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Many parents have been looking for ideas and ways to keep their children entertained and let’s not forget birthdays and other celebrations! However thinking of ‘how to keep the children entertained?’ in a safe way makes things a lot more tricky, especially in times of uncertainty.
WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE TRANSMISSION OF CORONAVIRUS?
The main route of transmission is from cough and sneeze droplets. These droplets fall on people in the vicinity and can be directly inhaled or picked up on the hands and transferred when someone touches their face. How long any respiratory virus survives will depend on some factors for example:
- What surface the virus is on
- Whether it is exposed to sunlight
- Differences in temperature and humidity
- Exposure to cleaning products
Under most circumstances, the amount of infectious virus on any contaminated surfaces is likely to have decreased significantly by 24 hours, and even more so by 48 hours.
ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR CHILDREN AT RISK BY HIRING A BOUNCY CASTLE?
The coronavirus causing COVID-19 is a nasty bug, but like other members of the coronavirus family, it’s no match for good disinfecting products, health experts say “There are many bad things about the coronavirus, but there is one good thing: It is not very hardy,” said Dr. John Swartzberg, an expert on infectious diseases and a professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health. “It is easily destroyed by most disinfectants.”
