You’d think that your kids are safe from head lice now, since head lice can’t jump or fly.

The only way head lice can get from head to head is to crawl, meaning children need to be in close contact with other children to pass them on.

Children might be socially distanced during class, but there may be occasions where heads bump in the playground.

Mr Burgess explained: “Children are more prone to headlice as they are regularly in close contact with each other.

“Children aged 4 to 11 are most at risk but no one is immune.

“Girls tend to be more likely to get lice as they tend to play more closely together with greater head-to-head contact than boys.

“But there are still certainly plenty of boys and men with lice.”
