Checklist Available for Safety of Children and Youth Living or Working on Farms through COVID-19 - June 18, 2020

The diverse nature of agriculture in the United States means that older teens and young children can also be found in ag work sites, some of which are family-owned and not subject to labor laws. The National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety worked with colleagues at CDC/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to ensure that special conditions for children were addressed in the new guidance document. See news summary with important links or go directly to the National Children's Center's Child/Youth Agricultural Safety Checklist.
