Along with getting your flu shot, the health department encourages frequent hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes with your sleeve to reduce the spread of the flu. Those experiencing flu symptoms should stay home from work or school, get rest, and drink plenty of fluids. If your symptoms become progressively worse or severe, you should seek medical care.
