Health Tip: Keep Kids Safe Around Animal Exhibits

(HealthDay News) -- Petting zoos are fun for children and a great way to expose them to different animals. But parents should take precautions to protect against germs.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer these guidelines:

  • Wash hands, using soap and water, immediately after leaving the exhibit.

  • Do not carry or serve food in the animal areas.

  • Never share food with the animals.

  • Wash your hands before touching food or drink.
