Tuesday, November 10, 2020
As we enter the flu season, all the safeguards we’ve put in place for COVID apply for flu. Mask up, wash up, back up, clean up — and get your flu shot!
As COVID-19 is spiking throughout the country, we do not want to let our guard down. As we enter the flu season, all the safeguards we’ve put in place for COVID apply for flu.
Mask up: Wear a universal source-control mask when in public or sharing space with others.
Wash up: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use alcohol hand sanitizer.
Back up: Maintain at least 6 feet distance between yourself and others when gathering.
Clean up: Clean and sanitize high-touch surfaces
And also get your flu shot!
Both the flu and COVID-19 have similar signs and symptoms. Getting the flu vaccine will protect you from the seasonal flu — and protect you from similar symptoms of COVID-19, including:
- Fever or feeling feverish/chills
- Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Muscle pain or body aches
Protect yourself from flu and eliminate it as a suspect by getting your flu shot!
