Health education programme e-bug launches new site

Ahead of the new school term e-bug have launched their new site and free resources. e-Bug, operated by the UK Health Security Agency, is a health education programme that aims to promote positive behaviour change among children and young people to support infection prevention and control efforts.

Health protection guidance and new free e-Bug resources are now available for educators, community leaders, parents, and caregivers to educate children and support childcare settings to prevent and respond to outbreaks.

Educators and childcare staff are urged to review guidance on how to prevent and control infections, educate students on practicing hand and respiratory hygiene, as well as infection prevention methods - which are most effective when everyone follows them.
