Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport releases Coronavirus Parental Toolkit

Coronavirus

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport has released a guide for parents who want to know more about COVID-19, commonly known as Coronavirus.

The guide highlights things such as information regarding the virus, how to talk to kids about COVID-19, and tips on how to stay healthy while traveling, among other topics.

One of the biggest questions people have regarding the Coronavirus is: What are the symptoms? According to the guide, some symptoms may include a runny nose, cough, sore throat, headaches and possibly fever.

With the recent proclamation by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards closing all K-12 public schools statewide until April 13th, there are going to be a lot of students staying at home, but that can cause a sense of cabin fever. Oschner LSU Health recommends finding fun activities to pass the time.
