Nebulizer Use During COVID-19
Message from the California School Nurses Organization (CSNO): In a recent phone call with the San Diego/Imperial, Dr. Howard Taras, American Academy of Pediatrics School Health Council Member shared his thoughts surrounding COVID-19 and school health issues. As a means to reduce Aerosolized Transmission Disease (ATD), Dr. Taras shared that students with nebulizers in schools should 1) transition to an inhaler with space chambers and 2) reassess the risk of the student being at school, given COVID-19, and consider distance learning as not to further compromise the health of the student.
