What must I do to prevent the spread of infections and communicable diseases?

(1) You must notify your licensor if you or any adults living in your home have been exposed to someone with tuberculosis or if a health care provider recommends testing.
(2) Retesting for license renewals is not required unless the above conditions apply.
(3) You must promote personal hygiene to help prevent the spread of germs in your home such as washing hands after smoking, changing diapers, using the toilet, touching animals, playing outside or before preparing food or eating.
(4) If you care for medically fragile children, you may use in-home nursing services to consult on additional infection control procedures.
