September 26, 2014 – Flu Season Update from Vicki Corke, H&S Coordinator and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention

Preventing the Flu: Good Health Habits Can Help Stop Germ

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.

  1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  2. Stay home when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  3. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  4. Clean your hands by washing them often. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth as germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
  6. Practice other good health habits such as cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

How do you know if you have the flu.....?

The major difference with influenza, as opposed to colds, is you will usually have a high fever with influenza.  There is usually a headache associated with influenza and sometimes it can be very severe and you don’t get that with a cold.  Probably the most unique sign for influenza is that you can get severe muscle aches that one doesn’t get with colds and with influenza, the tiredness and fatigue is worse than a cold.  Ontario’s Ministry Chief Physician, Dr. Genesove also advises that all other symptoms can be common between cold and influenza like runny nose, sneezing and sore throat – but the fever, headache and muscle aches are what identify influenza. 

All employees must stay home and rest if any of these influenza symptoms are present when ill.  This is one of the only ways we can stop the spread of influenza.

With flu season upon us, we would like to remind our employees that for most individuals, getting the flu shot remains to be the most effective way to prevent becoming infected with any influenza virus.  Consult with your Physician or local Health Unit to see if it’s right for you.

We also encourage all employees to practice good hygiene by washing hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.  If you become ill, stay at home and avoid contact with others.

With flu season fast approaching, we would like to remind our employees of ways to prevent becoming infected with any influenza virus.  First of all, we encourage all staff to get the flu shot.  Flu shots are generally available through your Physician or clinics arranged by your local health unit.  It is important to remain healthy for both your home and work life.  We also encourage all employees to practice good hygiene in an effort to prevent the spread of any flu virus.  If you become ill, stay at home and avoid contact with others.
