Flu season and cough drops

    Good morning!

    With the flu season coming up, and no concrete rule (just advisories) about cough drops in schools-except not under 5(or 4) years of age-I'm wondering what other programs' policies are towards cough drops and throat sprays?
    Cambridge public schools says the nurse does not give out cough drops-just warm water.  But looking at other counties, I see that only the nurse gives them out.  Is there a consensus across the country for out of school time?
