Even though it seems far removed from the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon Public Health Department had us send home information for parents today (should be going home from all public schools soon if it hasn't already). Let's hope we can stay away from this strain of flu! The big push is to remind folks to stay home when sick. That seems like a no-brainer but doesn't always happen with the little folks but ODE says that schools will close if the outbreak hits if necessary. All the more reason to countdown the days until summer, don't you think?
PS- I didn't have shingles.
