This means if you kid has lice it is not a public health threat. In addition most parents scour the house laundering, vacuuming and bagging. However none of the laundering, vacuuming and bagging are necessary for head lice.

In fact people in Colonial Williamsburg struggled with bedbugs, fleas and body lice daily in addition to head lice.
