The Swine Flu (the not-so-kosher flu)

Written by Ronny Drapkin

As the H1N1 Swine Flu makes its way across the country, we all need to take standard, common sense precautions.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are 141 reported cases of the swine flu (for the latest updates and information go to: http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/).

Last night, a Harvard dental student was identified with probable swine flu, prompting closure today of Harvard Dental, Medical, and Public Health Schools as a precautionary measure.

What you should know:

1) Spread of this swine influenza A (H1N1) virus is thought to be happening in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

What you need to do:

First and most important: wash your hands. Try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Try not touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

The shul will have hand sanitizing lotion available on the front hall table and in the downstairs social hall.
