Posted October 25, 2018 04:30:32 The flu bug is on everyone’s minds after the flu season has kicked off.
So what can you do if you are sick?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends avoiding direct contact with people who are ill, including family members, close friends and anyone you suspect has been infected with the virus.
The CDC recommends that you use your personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect yourself and your family members from the flu.
For most people, that means wearing a face mask.
The CDC recommends using a nasal spray for people with a cough and nasal spray and a mask for those with a fever.
But if you or a loved one is sick and can’t stay home because you are taking antibiotics, you should avoid direct contact.
In addition, the CDC says you should also avoid contact with others who have been exposed to the flu or are showing symptoms.
If you or your family member has had contact with someone who is ill, you need to contact the CDC immediately and get tested.
