Flu Season is Here!

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. Flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, eyes or possibly their nose.

 

The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year. YOU CAN STILL GET A FLU VACCINE NOW – IT IS NOT TOO LATE!  Talk to your healthcare provider about getting the vaccine available through their office. Please contact the school nurse if you need help in obtaining a healthcare provider and/or insurance

for your children.

 

Other preventive measures to follow are:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your elbow, when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
  • Please see the Centers for Disease Control website for additional information about seasonal influenza at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm
