occurs between October and May and typically peaks in January and
February. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
predicts that this will be a particularly heavy flu season. The
CDC encourages everyone, especially school personnel, to get
vaccinated because children are among the most vulnerable to the
disease. The following tips are always good to keep in mind:
hands often with soap and water or alcohol based hand sanitizer
touching eyes, nose or mouth
close contact with those who are already sick
plenty of sleep
healthy food and drink plenty of fluids
your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or
the crook of your arm
home if ill for at least 24 hours after fever is gone
