Parents Warned To Keep Harmful Chemicals Out Of The Reach Of Children

The Westmoreland Health Department is calling on parents to keep harmful chemicals out of the reach of children, in light of the increased use of sanitising products in households to protect against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The reminder from Health Promotion and Education Officer at the Health Department, Gerald Miller, comes following reports in the United States of a drastic spike in disinfectant poisoning among children since the COVID 19 pandemic.
