It happens to be the H1N1 virus but it is the normal seasonal influenza of this winter.Normal precautions for this should include  excluding children from school if they are ill and encouraging hand washing, cleaning of surfaces and proper disposal of tissues.

The following is advice found on the Health Promotion web site re Influenza :

How can one avoid getting the Flu?

Good Health Habits are important. These include:

  • Covering nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing
  • Throw the tissue away in a waste-paper basket
  • Washing hands often with soap and water (or alcohol-based hand cleaner), especially after coughing or sneezing

Stay away as much as you can from people who are sick.

  • If you get the Flu, stay home from work or school.
  • Do not go near other people so as not  make them unwell too.
