Flu Season Reminders

Cover your Cough

As you know the flu season is here. We encourage you to take preventive measures to ensure your family does not get sick this winter. Here are a few tips:

*Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.

*Cover your mouth or nose with a tissue if you sneeze or use your upper sleeve (not your hands) if you have no tissue.

*Disinfect shared objects and common areas, clean doorknobs, tables, telephones, countertops, etc.

*Avoid sharing personal items such as eating utensils, toothbrush, drinking cups or straws, etc.

*Be careful around those who are sick. Stay away at least 6 feet from people who are coughing or sneezing. Do not touch or rub your eyes and always wash your hands immediately after any contact with someone who is sick.

*Be ready to arrange for the care of your family and household responsibility should a family member become ill..

Flu shots are available throughout the county. For information on flu shots contact the Riverside County Health Department.

Reminder: If your child becomes ill, he/she cannot return to school without a doctor’s note releasing the child back to school.
