FLU (Flu CDC.gov Update)

  • We have not focused on the Flu for the last two years because COVID-19 remains at the forefront and very dangerous.
  • However, the FLU is as severe and contagious as COVID-19. Adults over 65, people with disabilities, heart disease, diabetes, depressed immune systems, asthma, and young children, are at higher risk of severe flu complications.
  • Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season, except those that are allergic. Contact your doctor for all guidance.
  • Take everyday preventive action to reduce the spread of Flu.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect all surfaces that could be contaminated throughout the day.
  • For Flu, CDC recommends that people stay home for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone except to get medical care or other necessities.
  • Fever should be gone without the need to use a fever-reducing medicine. Note that the stay-at-home guidance for COVID-19 may be different.

Our Caregivers will:

  • Not work if sick or showing symptoms of the Flu
  • Wash or sanitize their hands regularly
  • Disinfect hard surfaces daily (doorknobs, counters, tables.)
  • Follow CDC and Texas HHS guidelines
