AGENCY POLICY ON FLU SEASON
PRECAUTIONS AND ATTENDANCE
Much has been published lately regarding the H1N1 flu virus and the potential impact for outbreaks this flu season. This policy is intended to assure you that MARC is monitoring the situation and that we have made preparations to address issues that may arise. It is important to keep the lines of communication open and focus of the facts.
Some strain of the "Flu" occurs every year. Usually the greatest impact on our community is felt in the fall and winter. Some people are more vulnerable based on health issues, age, and other factors. Those individuals deemed to be "at risk" are typically advised to receive flu vaccine shots as they become available.
One guiding principle agreed upon universally is to keep sick people away from healthy people as the flu is contagious and can spread rapidly. Staying home when sick stops the spread of the flu and other illnesses and helps the sick person to get well. The chart below offers generally accepted guideline to follow when making decisions on whether or not to stay home.
