Influenza and Enterovirus
Although it is impossible to predict what the Flu and Enterovirus-D68 season will be like this year it is possible to support prevention and management of them.
The easiest FIRST STEP for prevention for both is HANDWASHING. Wash your hands frequently ~ for at least 20 seconds ~with soap and water. This is especially important before touching food, after using the bathroom, and after changing diapers.
There is more easy to follow recommendations and facts on the following websites that are supported by the State of New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services
