Flu season is here!
With the arrival of flu season, here’s a reminder on how you can help stop spreading the flu. The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) would like to remind everyone of some simple steps that can help prevent and reduce the spread of influenza.
First is the flu vaccine. It protects you and your loved ones. Increase your chances of avoiding the flu this year by getting your flu vaccine and help stop the spread of infection. Influenza immunization is available through your healthcare provider, at community health centres and participating pharmacies. You can also make an appointment at the EOHU to get your flu vaccine. Visit our website at www.eohu.ca.
Then there’s the importance of hand hygiene and coughing etiquette. Washing your hands properly will help prevent the spread of infections. Remind your kids to wash their hands before and after handling food, before and after eating, after using the washroom, as well as after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing.
Keep in mind that viruses and bacteria can also be spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It’s therefore important to cough and sneeze into your sleeve (not your hands) or cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. Throw away used tissues in the garbage and wash your hands well. And remember – keep your children home from school when they’re sick!
Everyone is invited to a bilingual Rosary Rally at the Alexandria Grotto on Saturday, October 12th from 11:00 to 11:25 a.m.
Come pray for Canada with the Catholic community of the faithful, just as our Blessed Mother encouraged us to do at Fatima. All families – men, women and children – are invited to join us in a public witness of reverence for the mother of Jesus, and our belief in her powers of intercession.
In case of rain, the Rosary Rally will take place in St. Finnan’s Church.
We hope to see you there! If you are unable to attend, please offer a Rosary at home.
