Feeling Good in February
Feeling Good in February 
 
As we turn our calendars to February, we are all optimistic that cold and flu season will soon be behind us. Please take a moment to remind your family of the important stay-healthy tips listed below:

 

If you or your children are sick,

  • =         STAY HOME
  • Do not return to school or work until you are fever free (without the use of fever reducing medicine) for at least 24 hours.
  • =         Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Be sure to throw away the tissue after you use it.
  • =         Wash your hands often with warm soap and water.  If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol – based hand rub.
  • =         Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; that is how germs spread.
  • =         Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated (table tops, desks, TV remotes, game remotes, toys etc.)

 

Notes about influenza (flu):

  • =         Contagious respiratory illness
  • =         Can lead to serious illness and result in hospitalization
  •    Young children, older people and people with certain health conditions are at high risk of flu complications.
