Experts Urge Parents To Avoid Play Dates For Their Kids

Experts are asking parents to avoid letting their kids have play dates with friends during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak despite the weather’s getting nicer and schools are closed. Allison Lowry, the program manager of child abuse and neglect prevention services at Fairfax County, Virginia’s Department of Family Services, said on keeping kids away from in-person visits with friends, “It’s hard. It’s really hard.”

According to, “Some parents might question why kids should be denied visits with people they typically see regularly from one or two other families. But currently, practicing social distancing is paramount, medical officials say. “The key to slowing the spread of COVID-19 is to limit contact as much as possible,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises. “While school is out, children should not have in-person playdates with children from other households.” Lowry doesn’t believe children are capable of adhering to the 6-foot rule for social distancing.”

As per, “Lowry suggests virtual visits, such as video chats with friends on the phone via FaceTime or online with Zoom conference calls. She also said riding bikes with family or playing catch with siblings could help keeps kids busy. “Go on a walk,” Lowry advised before adding, “Step off the path, when another family is coming.” You can find additional social distancing-related tips on the Fairfax County COVID-19 page.”
