I sit on a committee comprised of doctors, nurses and medical personnel who know their stuff. A commitment I will make to you is to take the information I am receiving from this flu committee and keep you in the loop.
Our first meeting is today at 10 a.m. In the meantime, I wanted to give you a few helpful hints on how to stay healthy during this flu season:
1) Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Hand sanitizer and washing your hands for the length of singing "Happy Birthday" is a good rule of thumb. Keeping alcohol-based hand foam on you at all times will help you keep hand-washing top-of-mind.
2) Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or into a tissue. Sneezing and coughing in your hand only spreads germs!
3) Practice social distancing. People think this is odd, but if you are in public try to stay at least 3 feet away from others.
More to come on the H1N1 front. Hope this will keep you going until I can give you more of an update.
