For novel H1N1 influenza
During the period that you have symptoms, especially fever, it is possible for you to spread the flu virus to those who have close contact with you (for example, someone living with or caring for you). To help prevent spread of the flu virus to others in close contact with you, the health department is asking you to follow these guidelines: THE PERSON WHO IS SICK SHOULD  STAY AT HOME at least 24 hours after fever is gone. Fever should be gone without
AVOID CLOSE CONTACT WITH OTHERS. Limit your contact with others. Avoid
close contact such as kissing, sharing toothbrushes or drinks with people who are not sick. Try to stay in one room of the house, as far away from others as possible.  COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE. Always cover your mouth and nose when
sneezing, coughing, or blowing your nose.  WASH YOUR HANDS. Wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based
hand gel right after you sneeze, cough or throw a used tissue in the trash.  WEAR A MASK. When you are in close contact with others (within 6 feet) or if it is
necessary to leave the house, wear a mask to stop the spread of flu to others.  CALL YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER IF YOUR SYMPTOMS GET
o Trouble breathing including shortness of breath or fast breathing o Bluish skin color o Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen o Sudden dizziness o Confusion or irritability o Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough o Refusing to drink fluids  WATCH FOR SYMPTOMS. Household and close contacts should watch for
symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or runny nose. Contacts that develop symptoms should remain at home and follow the steps listed above.  CHOOSE ONE PERSON TO CARE FOR THE SICK PERSON. Limit the number
of people caring for the sick person. Wear a mask if you must have close contact. If at all possible, persons with chronic health problems and pregnant women should not care for the sick person.  WASH YOUR HANDS. Wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based
hand gel right after any contact with the sick person. Wash your hands after handling dirty laundry and other personal items  LIMIT THE NUMBER OF VISITORS. Sick people should not have visitors while
they are ill. If someone who does not live in the home with the patient has to enter the home, they should not come in close contact (within 6 feet) of the sick person.  WIPE DOWN SURFACES. Clean surfaces that are frequently touched or shared with a
standard household disinfectant. This may include doorknobs, remote controls, bedside tables, and bathroom counters / fixtures. DOES THE SICK PERSON NEED TO TAKE MEDICINE?
Persons should only take medicine for influenza if their healthcare provider prescribed them.
For pregnant women or people with certain health conditions, a medicine called either
oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or zanamivir (Relenza) may be prescribed. All sick persons should rest,
drink plenty of liquids, and take over the counter medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen
to treat their fever and other symptoms. Children under 18 years of age should NOT take
or products containing aspirin (e.g. Pepto-Bismol), as this can cause a rare serious
illness, Reye syndrome.
Most people who live with or have close contact with people with flu do not need to take any
medication to prevent illness. Call your healthcare provider if you have questions about whether
you need medication to prevent illness.
