The community is seeing a rise in both Pertussis and Influenza. Please look at the following guidelines for ways to keep your family healthy!
1. Vaccination-make sure the family is up to date with both the flu vaccine and the pertussis vaccine.
2. Wash hands often- teach your family to use warm water and soap and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
3. Cover your cough-teach the family to cough/sneeze into the elbow to reduce the spread of germs.
4. Stay home if you are sick- take the time to rest and recover if you are ill. This also helps reduce the spread of illness.
