It's Flu Season - Please Stay Home if You are Ill!
A word of advice from Pen Bay Medical Center's Infection Prevention team during this heightened flu season:
If you are sick, whether it be with cough or “cold” symptoms (with or without fever) or diarrhea, stay home if possible. In particular, do not visit hospitalized friends or relatives if you have these symptoms. And avoid contact with others in the community who may be at similarly increased risk for serious flu or diarrheal illness due to extremes of age (the elderly and infants) or other chronic medical conditions. We at Pen Bay would like to do everything possible to limit the spread of influenza and norovirus infections, especially among those who may be more likely to become seriously ill with these viruses.
