The most recent information from the CDC indicates "widespread flu (influenza) activity" in Vermont and across the country. https://www.cdc.gov/f
Here's a few reminders to help keep your family healthy.
- Wash your hands frequently!! This is the BEST way to keep yourself (and your family) healthy. Lather for 20 seconds; don't forget your thumbs, fingernails, and the back of your hands; turn off the faucet with a paper towel.
- If you haven't received your flu shot, please consider getting one to help prevent the spread of flu. Even though the effectiveness is lower this year (about 30%) it is still better than zero protection.
- Please remember to keep your child home if he or she is sick. Your child should not return to school until at least 24 hours after the fever has resolved (without fever reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Advil)
