Are you concerned about the Flu?
The Monroe County Health Department is working to prepare the county for the flu season.
First and most important: wash your hands! Try to stay in good health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage our stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Try not to touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza.
Call Karen if you have questions at 740-472-1677 ext 202
