Part 7 of 8- Guess the germ, virus or bacteria!
We're nearing the close of this infection control game.  Soon you will be able to copy all the eight parts into a fun lesson for future students/employees.  Again, this lesson became available with the digital release of the Hygiene Instructional Manual (featuring Glo Germ).

We will be sending out an entire digital copy of the manual (school version) via the Adobe SendNow service (so we don't overfill client's email boxes).  The manual contains full hygiene lessons, infection control games, worksheets, germ information, isolation guidelines, health assessments, tests and more!  If you would like the link where to download this manual then email us (info@OUTFOXprevention.com).

The link is only valid for 30 days so make sure to download it when we make it available!  Let us know if you have questions.

Ok, let's play this round!  This one is an easy guess.  To further challenge your students or staff members, make sure to add the Glo Germ element into your lesson.  Showing them the fluorescent germs will get them on the right path to better health habits.

Who Am I? #7 

Choose the answer (options below) that most accurately represents the germ, bug or illness based on the following characteristics.  The correct answer is at the bottom of the page.

About Me: 

I am actually a tiny insect that lives in human hair and feeds on human blood. I multiply quickly by laying eggs near the scalp. My nits (eggs) are often confused with dandruff 

What I do: 

I latch on to any head of hair that I can come in contact with. For example, I jump from person to person when combs, towels, pillowcases, hats, headphones, and other headgear or clothes are shared. I cause my victims to itch because of my bite. People often create a rash by scratching at me so much.

How to Stop Me: 

In order to catch me early, people should be on the outlook for my nits. Regular checks in the school or work setting are a must or I may infect the whole place! If nits or lice are found, see a doctor and report it to the school nurse or HR Director. The single best way to keep me from infecting you is to refrain from sharing items with others. Again, stay away from sharing coms, brushes, hair accessories, headphones, hats, helmets, clothing, bedding, etc.

Choose the virus, illness, or bug from the list that best fits the description below.

  • -Meningitis
  • -Tuberculosis
  • -Head Lice
  • -Hepatitis A
  • -Impetigo
  • -Varicella (Chicken Pox)
  • -Influenza
  • -Tinea Capitis (Ringworm of the Scalp) 

Answer: Head Lice
