As we approach the respiratory virus season, we want to keep you informed and provide essential information on staying well.
Respiratory Virus Season Information:
The fall and winter months typically increase respiratory viruses, including influenza and colds. With the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19, it’s crucial to stay vigilant and well-informed about respiratory illnesses and their prevention.
Be Well and Stay Well:
- Practice Good Hygiene: Continue to practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol are also effective when soap and water are not available.
- Wear Masks: If you are in a crowded or indoor setting, or if your feeling unwell, consider wearing a mask to protect yourself and others from respiratory viruses.
- Maintain Social Distancing: When appropriate, maintain a safe distance from others to reduce the risk of viral transmission.
