Preventing the Spread of Influenza
Most people with influenza will be able to remain at home while they are sick. They can care for themselves or be cared for by others who live in the household. This information is intended to help people recognize the symptoms of influenza and care for ill people in the home, both during a typical influenza season and during an influenza pandemic.

Know the symptoms of influenza, which may include:
Sudden onset of illness, chills, headache, stuffy nose, feeling of weakness, fever higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, cough, sore throat, and muscle aches. In children, symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and/or feeling really tired.

Prevent the spread of illness in the home
Influenza viruses are spread from person to person primarily through sneezing and coughing. The virus may also be spread through contact with germs on the hands of a sick person or by touching objects or surfaces that have been touched by a sick person. For this reason, it is important to take steps to prevent the spread of influenza to others.
