As Flu Season begins, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services reminds people to observe routine public health recommendations for the prevention of any strain of influenza:
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when your cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. This is how germs spread.
- Try to avoid close contact with sick people. Flu is thought to spread person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected persons.
- If you get sick, stay home from work or school to limit the contact with others to keep from infecting them.
As the #1 preventive measure, the American Medical Association encourages everyone, six months and older, especially pregnant women, to be vaccinated against the flu. For more information about the vaccine, please click here.
As a reminder, if your child has a fever of 100° or higher, or vomits, he/she may not return until they are fever/vomit free for one full school day without medication.
