Students, Parents, and Community Members:
This year’s H3N2 Influenza strand has proven to be very aggressive in the severity of symptoms and length of recovery. As we try to think positive for spring, we must be aware that the flu season has not ended and will likely continue for the next several weeks. Keeping this in mind, PLEASE be sure to protect yourself and others by following CDC recommendations. These recommendations include…
-Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
-Limit contact with others who may be sick
-Stay home if you exhibit the signs of flu-like illness or have a fever; be sure to remain at home for at least 24 hours.
Some other considerations include washing coats & winter garments, backpacks, lunchboxes, and other frequently touched items.
