Webinar: RSV in Schools and Child Care Settings

January 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST

Although mask mandates and COVID-19 quarantine restrictions were lifted and are no longer enforced in many schools, the recent surge in Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) infections shows us that the battle for keeping students and staff safe and healthy from infectious diseases is far from over. Join the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) for a webinar on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, to discuss how RSV affects Indigenous populations, how it differs from the flu and COVID-19, and what to do if your child develops symptoms.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the signs and symptoms of RSV and how it spreads
  • Explain the recommendations for when students should stay home
  • Explain what preventative measures schools can take to protect students and staff

Wednesday, January 18, 2023
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Eastern

Who should attend?
Native families, Head Start staff, nurses, school staff and administrators, hospitals, emergency responders, health educators, and other Tribal public health professionals interested in preventing the spread of infectious diseases.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Audrianna Marzette, Public Health Policy and Programs Manager, at amarzette@nihb.org.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar.
