Have flu-like symptoms?  Before seeking medical care

Flu symptoms include: high fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches and nausea. The seasonal flu is a common, passing condition and most healthy people recover without having to seek medical attention. The swine flu, or H1N1 virus, is very much like seasonal flu and the effects are normally as familiar and temporary.  To help us better serve the needs of the community and limit the spread of infection, please seek care only if absolutely necessary.  Priority should be given to: 

  • Pregnant women.
  • Young children.
  • People with certain chronic conditions.
  • Seniors age 65 or older.
  • Any person with flu symptoms who begins to show warning signs of a more serious illness.  Warning signs include: difficult breathing, bluish skin color, dehydration, fever with a rash, chest or abdomen pain, sudden dizziness, confusion and severe or persistent vomiting.  Seek attention immediately.

If you have flu symptoms but don’t meet the above criteria, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you stay home from work or school, get rest, drink plenty of liquids, cover your cough and wash your hands frequently.  If you have a fever, stay home for at least 24 hours after that fever has ended.  There are over-the-counter medications to relieve the symptoms of the flu, but never give aspirin to children or teenagers who have flu-like symptoms, particularly fever.
