Feeling sick? Remember the rules of etiquette

It is still cold and flu season which means we must all continue to be mindful of some simple rules to limit the spread of common sicknesses.


Feeling sick? To protect yourself and others, remember these rules of etiquette:


👀 Listen to your body and monitor your symptoms. Fever or chills, muscle or body aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, fatigue, congestion, nausea or diarrhea can all be signs of the flu or COVID-19.


🏡 Stay home if you’re feeling unwell. It will protect your co-workers, friends and family from getting sick.


💤 Make sleep a priority. Aim to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep each night.


🥤 Stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids to replenish your body.


👨🏾‍⚕️ Call your doctor or 811 if you’re unsure or if your symptoms worsen.
