Lake County Health Department Flu Prevention Tips

Lake County Health Department Flu Prevention Tips

Each influenza season, LHS collaborates with the Lake County Health Department to track the trends of influenza illness in our county.  No identifiable information is shared, numbers only are reported to the department. 

Parents, as a reminder, when you call in an absence,  please report flu/influenza-like illness as defined here:  a fever of 100 or >, with a cough and/or sore throat, and it has not been diagnosed as the flu/influenza. If it is diagnosed as the flu, by a healthcare professional, please state that. 

We are in the midst of the influenza season. Please take a look at these guidelines from the Lake County Health Department for prevention and treatment.  Thank you for helping us keep LHS healthy!
