Flu season is in full swing and  people ARE getting sick.  There are many viruses that can be easily spread from person to person.  Most people are contagious 1-3 days before become sick and perhaps up to 7 days after they become sick! 

Keep yourself well this season by following these tips:

  • avoid contact with those who are sick
  • stay home when you are sick (the office/school WILL survive without you)
  • if children are ill or have a fever, please keep them home from school
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing
  • wash your hands often.  If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose (this is how many germs are spread)
  • practice good health habits such as getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods.
