Cold & Flu Season / Enterovirus
School has now started, and Fraser Health raises concern for spreading of cold and flu germs, as well as the Enterovirus. Strong recommendations are that hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and personal hygiene are the best ways to prevent spreading germs. Symptoms of Enterovirus include: shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or wheezing, and/or extremely high fever. Advice is to take your child to see a doctor if they are exhibiting these respiratory symptoms.
