District 199 staff members are monitoring all developments and will
communicate information from the Minnesota Department of Public Health
as it becomes available.
The Minnesota Department of Health emphasizes basic infection
prevention measures, including covering your mouth and nose with a
tissue when coughing or sneezing, frequent hand washing with soap and
water and staying home when you are ill. If you have traveled within
the past week to Mexico or other areas where H1N1 novel influenza is
circulating, and you develop fever along with other flu symptoms, call
your health care provider. Tell them about your symptoms and travel
more information from the Minnesota Department of Health. The Minnesota
Department of Health has also set up a toll-free public information
for an influenza vaccine fact sheet.
