Daycare centers can be safe havens for bacteria and viruses due to a wide range of issues including:
- Close interpersonal contact with other children and a need for physical contact with adults
- Small children lack simple hygienic practices, including hand washing or not putting things in their mouths.
- Additionally, viruses and bacteria that cause illnesses, such as ear infections and strep
throat, can linger on surfaces such as cribs, children's toys and books for hours after contamination, and even after the objects are well cleaned.
In a recent study, researchers found that in the daycare center they examined, four of five stuffed toys were contaminated with S. pneumoniae, a leading cause of ear infections in children. The virus can also lead to dangerous respiratory tract infections in children and older people.
Also, several surfaces, including cribs that had been cleaned, were contaminated with S. pyogenes, a bacteria that commonly causes strep throat and skin infections in schoolchildren and can cause serious infection in adults.
