Keeping Our Tartt’s Community Healthy: Managing the Flu

What is the Flu?
Influenza, commonly referred to as the Flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs.
The flu is different from a cold and usually comes on very suddenly. While flu illness can range from moderate to severe, children will often need medical care because of the flu.
How does the Flu spread?
The flu mostly spreads by droplets when someone coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the noses or mouths of people nearby. A person can also get the Flu by touching something that has the flu virus on it and touching their eyes, mouth, or nose.
What are Flu symptoms?
Symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches, chills and sometimes (more commonly in children) nausea and diarrhea.
How can I protect my child from the Flu?
The first and best way to protect your children from the flu is to get a yearly flu vaccine for you and your child.
In addition to the flu vaccine, you and your child should take everyday actions to help prevent the spread of virus. Wash your hands after going to the bathroom and after sneezing or coughing. Always cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough. Stay away from people who are sick as much as possible to keep from getting sick yourself.
