The flu is still widespread throughout NJ. Morris County hospitals have been seeing a high number of influenza patients with complications being admitted to the hospitals.
Continue to wash your hands, cover coughs and sneezes, stay home when sick and call your doctor if you have flu-like symptoms.
In addition to flu there are gastrointestinal illnesses, many caused by norovirus, circulating in the community. The best way to reduce the risk of getting the virus is to:
Practice good hand hygiene
Carefully wash fruits and vegetables
Clean and disinfect surfaces if in contact with body fluids
Food Handlers should wait 3 days before returning to work if ill with norovirus
