We received a call from Connie, a mom in Sarasota, Florida asking us if it is possible for lice to be transmitted through hats. The answer is, yes, it is possible, but by far, the most common way to transmit lice is from head to head. Togetherness encourages the spread of head lice. In about 95% of cases, lice have been transferred through direct contact with an infested person.
Group Recreation in Summer Increases Likelihood of Lice Infection
Connie has 2 children and she reported that her children had been lice free all school year, despite outbreaks, but in August she saw them scratching. They had had a very social summer: hanging out with friends, going to the pool, and the whole extended family of 20 just spent a week at the Maryland shore. All this togetherness led the family to end up with cases of head lice.
