Fight the Flu

Flu season is coming.

Since this year’s flu season coincides with COVID-19, RNAO is committed to keeping you informed with credible resources to help you protect yourself, your family and the communities you serve as health-care providers.

We encourage everyone in Ontario to get the flu shot. It is the first and most important step in protecting against influenza (flu) viruses. There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. That’s why we urge you to stop the spread of germs by continuing to wash your hands often, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, cover your coughs and sneezes, maintain physical distancing from others and wear a mask. Public health officials say these preventative measures will help you to avoid exposure and reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the flu, and maintain your overall health.

For more information about the flu and flu shot, please see online: https://rnao.ca/covid19/fight-flu

Stay healthy Ontarians. #FightTheFlu
