Shoo Flu, Don’t Bother Me!

If you have…

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue (very tired)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

Then you probably got the flu!

According to experts, the flu usually spreads by droplets, which are made when people with the flu cough, sneeze, or talk. Droplets can enter the mouths or noses of other people. Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. No tissue? Then cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. Never your hands! And make sure to wash your hands!  The CDC states that a person who seems healthy can infect others “1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.” So it’s a good idea to get a flu shot ASAP. Both CVS and Walgreens offer flu shots.

It totally sucks to be sick. Please, do yourself and everyone around you a favor, STAY HOME AND GET BETTER!
