The toolkit includes:
Web Page – Community Resources for Staying Lead-Safe During COVID-19
CLPPB has developed a web page, Resources for Staying Lead-Safe During COVID-19, to provide information about lead safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. The web page provides lead poisoning prevention resources, including activities for kids, curricula for child care providers, schools and parents, and information about blood lead testing.
Educational Flyers for Lead Poisoning Prevention
These flyers address potential lead exposures that may be occurring more frequently while families are spending more time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Customizable Template Letters for Providers
Two template letters are provided for outreach to health care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first letter encourages providers to continue with lead prevention efforts and highlights specific actions caregivers and families can take to reduce lead risks to children. The second letter is a resource for health care providers to send to families encouraging them to return to their health care provider's office for well-child visits. Both letters are customizable. You may also include health care provider and patient education materials with these letters.
