TULSA, Okla. — As the concern about the virus grows, some places are working to make sure your kids stay safe.

2 Works for You's Vincent Hill checked in with a childrens' museum in Tulsa to find out what they're doing.

Hundreds of little hands and uncountable germs pass through the Discovery Lab daily.

Although health officials say children are less likely to catch the coronavirus, the museum's staff is not taking any chances.

They disinfect their equipment, floors and restrooms several times a day.

They say if they notice signs of sickness, it's addressed with the parent immediately.

"So, we would probably pull that adult aside and just note that that's happening and make sure we try to help them out and ask them if they're okay." said Christie Enochs, a public relations manager with Discovery Lab.

There are also several hand sanitizes throughout the building and throughout the day the staff ask visitors to use those to reduce the spread of germs.

If your child does show any signs of the virus, remove them from school or daycare and have them tested.
