"Completely revised and updated, the new sixth edition of this award-winning quick reference guide provides essential information about the prevention and management of infectious diseases in early childhood education settings, such as child care centers and schools. This edition is aligned with the most recent version of the premier American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) source of information on infectious diseases, Red Bookr: 2021-2024 Report of the Committee on Infectious Diseases, 32nd Edition. The robust section of more than 55 quick reference fact sheets on common infectious diseases and symptoms has been expanded to include a new sheet with pediatrician-approved guidance on best practices regarding COVID- 19. Managing Infectious Diseases in Child Care and Schools now includes information on pandemic preparedness and introduces a new website that will be continually updated with time-sensitive information for the prevention of infectious diseases. As always, the guide is easy to use and provides clear, authoritative guidance on limiting the spread of infection."
