Concerned about H1N1 flu

Did you know that Hamilton County JFS’ Child Care staff assists eligible low and moderate-income families across the county with finding and paying for child care? Parents can choose from a list of more than 1,500 home providers and centers that contract with the county.

So we’re especially concerned about the H1N1 flu outbreak.

To help child care providers and families better understand the virus, we’ve added links to several fact sheets and Web sites to the Child Care section under Services on www.hcjfs.org. Here’s a direct link: https://www.hcjfs.org/Demo/services/childcare/H1N1.htm

Also, we recently interviewed the Hamilton County Public Health‘s director of nursing and child care health consultant for southwest Ohio on the agency’s BlogTalkRadio show. You can listen to the 15-minute program at your convenience here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Hamilton-County-JFS/2009/11/13/H1N1-flu-Information-for-Child-Care-providers

We encourage child care providers and parents to educate themselves about H1N1 to do all that they can to protect their children from this illness.
