Typical pediatric injuries such as broken bones, gashes, and wounds can send kids to the emergency room or urgent care clinic.

Trampoline accidents and skateboarding are often the cause of such visits. Getting stitches and being in a confined place puts those family members at risk for contracting COV-19. As does X-rays, cat-scans and waiting around for results.

This is a good time to teach kids to play safely outside, as to not compound the medical system.

In addition, while parents are at home, ensure chemicals, sharps, laundry pods and other dangerous items are locked away from children.
