Flu and Cold Season Reminders:

I’d like to share a few tips that will hopefully get us through this season safely!

  • Hand washing! Scrub with soap & water for at least 20 seconds! Alcohol based hand sanitizers are wonderful as well, just throw a bottle in your pocket or purse and you’ll have one everywhere you go.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, & mouth with potentially contaminated hands.
  • Avoid others who are sick.
  • Wipe down “high traffic” areas such as shopping carts, doorknobs, & countertops.
  • If you happen to feel or get sick, please stay at home to avoid spreading illness to others. Make sure you cover your mouth & nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • Most importantly, take care of yourself! Establish healthy habits such as getting plenty of rest, staying physically active, staying hydrated, & eating balanced meals.

Our flu clinic for residents & staff is scheduled for October 25th!

Happy Halloween!
