The recent outbreak of flu in Henry County is subsiding. With that, visitation restrictions imposed at Henry Community Health have been lifted. Normal visitation has resumed.
However, may we ask if you have cold or flu symptoms, please refrain from visiting until you are well. Remember, you still can spread germs up to seven days after you are sick.
You Can Help Stop the Spread of Flu
- Wash your hands often. The most common way to catch the flu is to touch your own eyes, nose or mouth with “germy” hands. So keep your hands clean, and away from your face.
- Keep your distance. When you are sick or if you are around someone else who is sick keep your distance.
- Stay home. One gift you can give others is to help prevent other people from catching your flu. We highly recommend you stay home from work, school and public places when you are sick. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
- Following these simple steps for up to a week after getting sick will help to reduce the chances of spreading the flu.
