Send a link to a friend

[September 30, 2009]  During this and every flu season, everyone shares the responsibility of reducing illness due to flu. To help reduce the spread of influenza, remember the three "C's":

  • CLEAN your hands frequently with warm soap and water or an alcohol-based hand gel.

  • COVER your cough or sneeze with a tissue, or use your elbow, not your hands.

  • CONTAIN your germs by staying home when sick until your fever is gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.

For more information, visit www.flu.gov and www.lcdph.org or call the Logan County Department of Public Health at 217-735-2317.
