Child daycare centers and afterschool programs under the authority of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor received strict directives Wednesday on how to reduce the threat of the H1N1 swine flu virus among children in their care. "Children are at a greater risk of contracting the virus," said Tamar Almog, Director of the Department of Daycare Centers and Kindergartens in the ministry. "We need to take precautions." Directives sent out by the ministry included stringent instructions urging parents to keep children at home if they exhibit any signs of illness; to be vigilant of any initial signs that a child might be sick, such as a high fever or runny nose; if it does become apparent that a child has the flu, that child must be immediately quarantined; and if more than one child contracts the virus, the local health-care department must be contacted immediately.
