sick Prevent the Flu
Steps for Flu Prevention - Please teach your children how to stay healthy by promoting good hygiene techniques and share the following suggestions with them.

  • Cover their nose and mouth with a tissue or by using the bend of the arm when they cough or sneeze—have them throw the tissue away after they use it.
  • Wash their hands often with soap and water, especially after they cough or sneeze. If water is not near, use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
  • Remind them to not to touch their eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs often spread this way
  • Keep your distance by at least 3 feet. If you are near someone who is showing signs of the flu, social distancing will reduce your chance of infection.
  • Stay home if you are ill. To help prevent the spread of the flu virus, staying home or keeping your children home when they are sick is the best way to protect them and others.


Know the symptoms! Flu symptoms include fever, headache, chills, body aches, tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, nasal congestion, nausea and vomiting. If you or your child is showing any of these symptoms, please stay at home!  Contact your physician about treatment options.  Antibiotics will not treat the flu, but there are other medications that can lessen the severity of the flu if given soon enough.  Always talk to your doctor before beginning any therapy.  For more information, contact your school nurse or the Northeast Texas Public Health District at 903-595-1350 or visit our website at www.healthpreparedness.org
