Please keep in mind it is still flu season and children can exhibit severe reactions to the flu. Nonetheless, any patients exhibiting symptoms should be isolated and everyone should practice social distancing and enhanced hygiene to minimize spread within the community. Please heed the guidelines of the CDC and WHO on how to minimize exposure to yourself and others.
