Flu activity is widespread in most of the United States. Do what you can to stay healthy this season.
A healthy diet and frequent hand washing are things we can do year round to keep healthy, but with the flu rampant across the U.S. we must take extra steps to prevent the flu, and minimize its impact if we do get it.
Some things we can do:
Practice hand hygiene. Dispose properly of dirty tissues. Sneeze into your arm and NOT into your hands (EEW)Spread your love but don't spread your germs!
Stay home if you are sick. Drink plenty of fluids. Sleep and rest. Take all meds as prescribed and finish them even if you feel better. Stay out of crowds if possible.
