The program was developed in partnership with the National Education Association (NEA) and National Parent Teacher Association (PTA), with messaging support from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
In this program, Lysol is also partnering with Kinsa, maker of what is considered the first FDA-cleared smart thermometer. Lysol and Kinsa will equip more than 10,000 schools across the country with free Kinsa smart thermometers and Lysol sanitizing products to help protect against viruses and bacteria.
Kinsa smart thermometers and a connected mobile app help parents anonymously understand which illnesses are circulating, guiding them through the next steps if fever and symptoms are cause for concern. Through this partnership, nurses and teachers in participating schools will receive a free Kinsa thermometer, and in select schools, parents will have the opportunity to receive a free Kinsa thermometer, too.
Also, producer, actress and author La La Anthony is partnering with Lysol to help educate parents and arm them with tips to help prevent the spread of cold and flu germs. Anthony will share her own personal experience on the impact that sick days have on her and her school-aged son, insights on all the not-so-obvious places parents can help disinfect with Lysol Disinfectant Spray, and information on Kinsa smart thermometers.
