Tips for flu season

Flu season has officially arrived, but by working together, we can help control the spread of influenza. Below are some helpful tips from the Minnesota Department of Health to help you and your family stay healthy this winter:

What can you do to protect yourself and others?
  • Get vaccinated (click here to find a clinic).
  • Avoid being exposed to others who are sick with a flu-like illness.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Clean your hands often - with soap and water or a hand sanitizer.
  • Don't expose infants unnecessarily to large crowds when influenza is in your community. Avoid close contact between the baby and family members who may be sick.
  • Do not share drinking cups and straws.
  • Frequently clean commonly touched surfaces (door knobs, refrigerator handles, phones, water faucets). 
  • Do not smoke around children.

What should you do if you think you or your child has the flu?
  • Stay home if you are ill and keep your child home from school or daycare if they are ill. Do not return to work or school until you have been fever free for at least 24 hours without using any fever reducing medications.
  • Rest and drink lots of fluids.
  • Antibiotics will not help a person recover from the flu, because flu is caused by a virus, not by bacteria.
  • Children often need help keeping their fever under control. Follow your child's doctor's instructions.
  • Take your child to the doctor or the emergency room if he or she:
    • Breathes rapidly or with difficulty.
    • Has bluish skin color.
    • Does not drink enough and becomes dehydrated.
    • Does not wake up or interact with others.
    • Is so irritable that he or she doesn't want to be held.
    • Gets better only to become sick again, with fever and a more severe cough.
  • If you are concerned that something does not seem right with your child, call your doctor or clinic.
