Flu Season 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we protect ourselves and our loved ones from the flu. The flu vaccine is the most effective way to prevent the flu, and the CDC recommends everyone six months and older get a flu shot before the end of October.

What do I do if I feel sick?

Both COVID-19 and flu have many symptoms in common. It’s very important to pay attention to common symptoms, which may come on suddenly and include:

  • Fever

  • Cough

If you have any signs of illness, please stay home, and seek care within two days of your first symptoms if they don’t go away.
