District Nurse News

From the desk of Kathy Barry, District Nurse:
Flu season is upon us.  Some of the symptoms of the flu are: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue, sometimes diarrhea and vomiting.  
 
Please keep your child home if they have flu symptoms.  Students cannot return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications (for example, Tylenol). 
 
The flu virus is spread mainly from person to person through droplets made when people with the flu cough, sneeze or talk.  The flu virus also may spread when people touch something with the flu virus on it and then touch their mouth, eyes or nose. 
 
To help prevent the spread of the flu, stay away from others as much as possible to keep from infecting others.  If you must leave home, wear a mask if you have one or cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or by sneezing into your elbow, not your hands.  Wash your hands often to keep from spreading the flu to other.
Thank you.
