Flu and Stomach Flu

The Flu

The flu (influenza) is transmitted very easily and can cause serious complications, especially in more vulnerable people.

Stomach Flu

Stomach flu is an inflammation of the lining of the stomach and intestine that causes diarrhea and vomiting. 

Preventing the Flu and Stomach Flu

  • Wash your hands often, especially when you are with people. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. 
  • Keep a large bottle of antibacterial gel and box of tissues within easy reach.
  • Clean frequently used items: door handles, toilet handles, remote controls, switches, telephones, favorite toys, etc.
  • If you are serving dip, prepare small individual bowls for children. This is a good way to keep viruses at bay.
  • Do not share glasses or utensils. Identify your glass.
  • Take care of your immune system: rest, take a short nap if necessary, and limit stress. Stay active. Dress for the weather.
  • Avoid contact with people who are or have recently been ill. They might still be contagious.
  • Vaccination is your best ally against the flu!
