You've all probably heard the warnings about the flu going around.We had questions about getting vaccines this week on our list. As a community we can do a lot to keep ourselves and our neighbors healthy so we're posting these neighborly reminders!
- Get plenty of rest.
- Eat right.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze-- 'into the V" of your elbow or shoulder (not your hand). Throw away tissues promptly.
- Wash your hands vigorously for 30 seconds to 1 minute under running water. Have kids sing the ABCs or some other song to help them pass the time.
- Keep your hands away (and the germs) away from your eyes, nose or mouth.
KIDS: Please help keep others safe by keeping your kids home when they are sick. Most schools have a 24 hours fever-free (with no meds) as a baseline-- but you know if your child is still sick even without a fever. (Do call the school as well to let them know).
ADULTS: Please help keep others safe by staying home and not riding subways while you are sick. While you may think the job (or you) are too important to miss work, you are jeopardizing someone else's health by being sick around other people. You too should also abide by the 24 hour fever free rule!
There are some people who can't get vaccines (infants) so please don't put others at risk by exposing them to being sick.
Stay Safe and Healthy folks!!
