Flu Season

As you may know, flu can be easily spread from person to person. Therefore, we are taking steps to reduce the spread of flu.
• Know the signs and symptoms of the flu. Symptoms of the flu include fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit, 37.8 degrees Celsius or greater), cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and feeling very tired. Some people may also vomit or have diarrhea.
• Keep sick children at home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever or do not have signs of fever, without using fever-reducing medication. Keeping children with a fever at home will reduce the number of people who may get infected.
• Do not send children to school if they are sick. Any children who are determined to be sick while at school will be sent home.
• CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine.

Como ustedes saben, la gripe se contagia fácilmente entre las personas. Por lo tanto, estamos tomando medidas para reducir la propagación de la gripe.
• Conozca cuáles son los signos y los síntomas de la gripe. Los síntomas de la gripe incluyen: Fiebre (100 grados Fahrenheit, 37.8 grados centígrados o más alta), tos, dolor de garganta, secreción o congestión nasal, dolores de cuerpo y de cabeza y sentir mucha fatiga. Algunas personas también pueden vomitar o tener diarrea.
• Mantenga a los niños enfermos en casa durante al menos 24 horas después de la desaparición de la fiebre o de los signos de fiebre, sin haber usado medicamentos para reducirla. Mantener a los niños con fiebre en casa reducirá la cantidad de personas que pueden contagiarse.
• No mande a los niños a la escuela si están enfermos. Los niños a quienes se les identifique por estar enfermos en la escuela se les regresará a su casa.
• Los CDC recomiendan que todas las personas de 6 meses en adelante se vacunen contra la influenza estacional.
