It's that time of year. Illnesses are circulating at higher levels and people are starting to feel it. You're sick, but what do you have? Know your symptoms to help you recognize what you're dealing with.

If you're suffering from flu-like symptoms, please stay home from work if possible, and keep sick kids home from school. A fever might be minor for you, but could indicate something that could be life-threatening for someone you could pass it on to. A co-worker fighting cancer, a parent with a heart condition, or a younger sibling who is at higher risk because of their age.

Some people are in positions that make sick days more difficult or nearly impossible. If you're in that situation, prevention is key. A flu shot as early as possible in the season, washing hands at least eight times a day and avoiding touching your face (and teaching kids to do the same), cleaning frequently touched surfaces and covering coughs and sneezes to avoid passing illness on are all vital to illness prevention. The flu is preventable when we all do our part. Let's all take as many steps as we can to protect ourselves and each other and prevent more stories like ours. Whose life could you save?

*Flu shots are becoming more available throughout Canada now and we're receiving more information. We'll be updating our page with regional availability over the next two days. If it's already available in your region, please go now. We're already receiving reports of confirmed cases of influenza A.
