This year’s flu is not only running rampant throughout 49 of the 50 states, it is gaining strength (mutating) and showing no sign of slowing down any time soon. As the local and national news have reported in recent days, many schools and school districts are having such high numbers of students with the flu that they are having to close their doors for a few days in order to disinfect. Parents, you can help us prevent this from happening at Hillcrest by being watchful and taking a few simple steps. The following information comes directly from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website and was last updated January 24, 2018.
You or your child may have the flu if you have some or all of these symptoms:
- fever (*It’s important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever.)
- sore throat
- runny or stuffy nose
- body aches
- sometimes diarrhea and vomiting
What should I do if I get sick?
Most people with the flu have mild illness and do not need medical care or antiviral drugs. If you get sick with flu symptoms, in most cases, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people except to get medical care. If, however, you have symptoms of flu and are in a high-risk group (including young children, people 65 and older, pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions), it’s best for you to contact your doctor early in your illness. CDC recommends that people at high risk for complications should get antiviral treatment as early as possible; the benefit is greatest if treatment is started within 2 days after illness onset. The emergency room should be used for people who are very sick; you should not go to the emergency room if you are only mildly ill.
How long should I stay home if I’m sick?
CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or other necessities. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, such as Tylenol®. You should stay home from work, school, travel, shopping, social events, and public gatherings.
What should I do while I’m sick?
Stay away from others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. If you must leave home, for example to get medical care, wear a face mask if you have one, or cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Wash your hands often to keep from spreading flu to others.
