Protect Your Family Around Animals

Fall brings festivals and fairs for families to enjoy. These events often have petting zoos and live animal displays. Due to an increase in animal-related illness, the CT Department of Public Health advises:

  • Always supervise children around animals.
  • Hand sanitizer is not enough! Hand washing is essential.
  • Disinfect and remove dirty items (like cups, bottles or pacifiers) to avoid exposure to germs.
