Over the last few weeks, we have been contacted by eCoronado.com members that wanted to remind the community that lice has been found at both schools and businesses here in Coronado. A local salon confirmed that lice has been found on both adults and children which has prompted them to regularly check for lice prior to having their hair technicians start working with a customer. I have two kids at Village Elementary and both had lice within the last six months.
We did an informational piece back in January 2010 and we thought it would be good to remind everyone how to check for lice and how to learn more about it. Please see the resources below:
