COVID-19 & Influenza – Protect Yourself

COVID-19 is still spreading in our community as we enter flu season (typically October – March each year).

  • It will be possible to contract COVID-19 & influenza (the flu) at the same time.
  • COVID-19 and influenza can have similar symptoms, but COVID-19 has additional symptoms

Here are some tips to protect yourself from COVID-19 and the flu:

  • Continue to social distance (keep at least 6 feet between you and others you do not live with)
  • Wear a face mask when out and about
  • Wash your hands often, with soap & water or sanitizer
  • GET A FLU SHOT – contact your health care provider or local pharmacy

The CDC’s Vaccine Finder website will help you find a location for a flu shot near you: https://vaccinefinder.org/find-vaccine.
