How Can I Prevent My Child from Getting Strep Throat?

Strep throat is very contagious. This means it can be passed from person to person.

The best way to stop Strep throat from spreading is to:

• teach your child to tell you when they have a sore throat (then take them to the clinic to be seen)
• teach your child to cover their nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing (preferably into their sleeve)
• make sure your child washes and dries their hands after coughing and sneezing, before eating, and after going to the toilet.
