by

HandWashing_250pxWe would like to share with you some information and suggestions regarding the H1N1 Flu, commonly known as the Swine Flu.  All of these suggestions could also be applied for the regular flu that circulates annually.  Although it is easy to become alarmed with the increased news coverage of this impending flu season, we urge you to please be cautious, but not fearful.  There are many precautions you can take to stay healthy this winter, and protect those around you.

  1. Wash your hands! Continuous and thorough hand washing is the best preventative.  Be sure to especially wash after contact with others, and high traffic areas (handrails, bathrooms).  A disinfectant hand sanitizers or wipes are perfect for these situations.
  2. Cover your mouth/nose! If you have to sneeze or cough, cover your mouth and nose completely with a tissue or sleeve, and then wash or sanitize your hands after.
  3. Get plenty of rest! Lack of sleep can lower your immune system, leaving you more susceptible to becoming sick.
  4. Eat well and drink plenty of fluids! Eating a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fluids boosts your immune system, helping you fight off viruses and bacteria.
  5. Be mindful and respectful of symptoms! If you are noticing any of the following symptoms, please call your physician and try to stay home to rest and prevent spreading the virus to others: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.
  6. Is someone else infected? Stay away! Unless it is absolutely necessary, stay away from those who are infected with the flu, as it is contagious.
