FIGHT THE FLU
When one family member gets sick, you might brace yourself for everyone getting sick. But it's possible to keep healthy family members from falling ill, too. Follow us this week for tips to protect your household from sharing germs.

Today's tip - HAND WASHING:
When taking care of a sick loved one, handwashing is more important than ever. All healthy family members should wash frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub. Do this after every contact with the sick person, their room and bathroom, and any items he or she used.

Handwashing is a must after:
- Every contact with the sick family member.
- Changing diapers.
- Cleaning soiled linens or clothing.
- Wiping your nose or your child's nose.

If you need immediate care, please visit our offices at New Castle Immediate Care & Family Health at Northfield Park (in front of the YMCA): Open evenings until 7pm and Saturdays until noon.
