Wednesday,  October 21, 2009 As the finishing touches are reaching a fever pitch for Jounen Kweyol, persons are reminded that the Influenza virus is a contagious bug that goes human to human with no need of assistance. The National Influenza Committee therefore reminds patrons:

1) That the H1N1 virus cannot be transmitted by eating pork or its products, making these products safe to eat once they are cooked properly.

2) If you are on sick-leave with flu like symptoms stay home. This year you will have to miss the mass crowd event.

3) Cover your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze.

4) Use a tissue to sneeze and cough then throw it away in a dustbin and wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizers.

5) Vendors are reminded to wash their hands often.

6) If you are going to drink then don't drive. Have a sober friend take you home.

7) Keep hydrated by drinking lots of water.

8) Be aware of the sun, watch out for sun stroke and be smart:

Spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm

Make sure you never burn

Aim to cover up with a t-shirt, hat and sunglasses

Remember to take extra care with children

Then use factor 15+ sunscreen

Remember your best defence is you.

Bon Fete!
