Flu Season

Flu Season

Traditionally referred to as "the flu," seasonal influenza is a contagious respiratory disease caused by the influenza virus.  Flu is spread person-to-person, often by droplets that are airborne from someone sneezing or coughing.  The flu virus can exist in the environment for days -- particularly in the cold and in low humidity.

Let’s all contribute to FIGHT and help reduce the spread of seasonal influenza!

     • Take everyday preventive actions, including covering coughs and sneezes, washing  
        hands, and keeping your hands away from the nose, mouth, and eyes. 
     • Stay home when sick.
     • Make a routine of surface cleaning.
