Flu information

What is the flu?

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness.

People who have the flu often feel some or all of these signs and symptoms:

  • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue (very tired)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

*It’s important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever. (CDC)

How does the flu spread?

Flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. A person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it then touching their own mouth, eyes or possibly their nose. People may infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.

How can I reduce the risk of contracting the flu?

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, keep your distance from others.
  • Wash your hands often or use an alcohol hand rub if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get enough sleep, eat nutritious foods, stay hydrated, be physically active and manage your stress.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as light switches, door knobs, faucet handles, remote controls, refrigerator door handles, etc.
  • Stay home when you are sick, avoid going to work, school and running errands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
