Got The Flu? Health Officials Say Stay Home

If the snow and cold doesn’t get you the flu might. Isolating yourself when you are sick may be hard sometimes but health officials say its better to stay home. 

 

According to an article by CBC, health officials say they understand why someone wracked with a cough, chills, and fever from influenza might want to get checked out at the hospital. But for most people, there’s no need to go.

 

The best course of action is to stay home and rest.

 

Going to hospitals exposes others to the virus, especially those with weakened immune systems or other health complications. It also ties up medical resources for those who might need them more.
