Preventing the Spread of Flu
Flu can be contagious even before symptoms appear and for several days afterward. To prevent spreading the virus, individuals with the flu should stay home and avoid contact with others. Keep sick family members home from school, work, day care, or social activities for at least 24 hours after their fever subsides.
Flu can be a severe and sometimes life-threatening illness for people of all ages, particularly those with underlying health conditions. The best defense against the flu is vaccination, coupled with good hygiene practices and early medical intervention if symptoms arise. By taking these precautions, you can help protect your loved ones and your community from the flu’s potentially devastating effects.
