HAPPY FALL Y’ALL!

Just wanted to make everyone aware that it is Flu season.  We are starting to see influenza in the hospitals and also here at school.  Please stay vigilent with your handwashing and covering your cough and sneeze.  The most important symptom that you will notice between the stomach bug and influenza is the fever they will have with the influenza.  The 1st signs appear 1-4 days after exposure.  They are most contagious 24 hours after symptoms begin and can be contagious for 5-7 days after onset of being sick.  Below you will find the symptoms of influenza:

  • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills.
  • Cough.
  • Sore throat.
  • Runny or stuffy nose.
  • Muscle or body aches.
  • Headaches.
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

REMEMBER TO GET YOUR FLU SHOTS!!!!
