Protect yourself and others from unwanted germs this flu season.
Flu season is just around the corner, and we’re prepared to stay healthy this winter.
If you are sick, stay home.
The easiest way to prevent the spread of illnesses is to stay home when you’re sick. Take the time to get well and avoid exposing others to your germs. This is especially important, given the continuing threat posed by COVID-19.

And, don’t forget!
Whether we’re battling the Coronavirus, the flu or the common cold, it’s important to continue following your division’s Health & Safety Protocols, including cleaning and disinfecting workstations and common areas, social distancing and wearing face coverings.
Let’s all do our part to keep ourselves, our families and our coworkers safe, during a pandemic, flu season or any other time of year.
Safety First. Always. And, it starts with me.
