Updated Influenza and Norovirus Information

posted Dec 12, 2014, 8:35 AM by mary.cain@ccsdre1.org
Well, the cold and flu season is here. Each school is seeing cases of both respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses.  Attached are current guidelines from the CDE and CDPHE.  As with any illness, prevention through hand washing and getting adequate rest is most beneficial.  If you do develop symptoms, it is best to stay home to rest and keep yourself hydrated, while trying not to infect others.  Also, keep in mind that it is not too late to get a flu shot.  It does still provide coverage for the influenza virus, and you can contact the local public health department in Idaho Springs, or your physician to schedule an appointment.

We hope you take a moment to read the attached information sheets, and contact your school's health office with any questions.

Have a happy holiday season and enjoy the winter break!
