Defend against the flu this season
Influenza and norovirus are hitting areas of the province particularly hard this winter. To help protect yourself, get a flu shot (health clinics, your doctor, and pharmacies). Also, wash your hands with soap and water several times a day. If soap and water is not readily available, use alcohol-based hand rubs.
