Protect yourself from the flu

It’s that time of year again, when we need to review the ‘Flu Facts’.

Influenza or ‘the flu’ is a viral respiratory infection, that is most commonly seen in Canada in the late fall and during the winter, although it can occur at any time of the year.   It is important to review ways to protect ourselves and limit the spread of the virus,  identify symptoms of the flu,  and learn ways to take care of ourselves and our loved ones if we do have symptoms.   The link below provides this information and more, and includes an overview of the preventative actions we can take every day.  “Protect yourself – and others – by learning about the flu and recognizing the symptoms”
