H1N1 (Swine) Flu Information Page

 

 

Based on information obtained from conference calls with Texas Department State Health Services, meetings with the local hospitals, and the Angelina County Health District all City parks are open to all normal activities.

We still encourage everyone to be conscientious and continue frequent hand washing, stay at home if you are sick, cover your cough/sneeze, and use alcohol based hand sanitizers.

 

Watch our new video on hand washing from the Angelina County and Cities Health District.  We also have a version En Espanola.



Provided for your information is a copy of a press release from the DSHS.
 

There are everyday actions people can take to stay healthy.

·         Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

·         Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.

·         Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.

 

Try to avoid close contact with sick people with flu symptoms.

·        Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.

·        If you get sick, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

 

The U.S. State Department is urging Americans to avoid 'non-essential' travel to Mexico.
