FLU tip of the day😊: The flu virus is spread mainly by droplets made when someone with flu coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the nose or mouth of people standing nearby (yuck!). This is why it is very important to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze (we’ll talk about that in a few days). Symptoms of the flu include: fever (usually high), cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and/or chills. Flu symptoms typically come on suddenly. Next week our focus will be on ways to prevent the flu and what to do if you get the flu☹ Have a great weekend and stay weather alert!

FLU tip of the day: The BEST way to protect you and your family from the flu is to get a yearly flu vaccine. Flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. If you’ve not already gotten a flu vaccine, it’s not too late! You can get a flu shot from your local doctor, health department, and many pharmacies offer them as well. Protect yourself and your family. Get vaccinated! Stay tuned tomorrow as we discuss signs and symptoms of the flu and how it spreads from person to person.
