Illnesses are Sweeping Through Schools

Health officials say illnesses are invading schools. Students and families are dealing with RSV, the flu, Covid, the common cold and more. Health officials claim there is a higher number of children in the emergency room with RSV. In addition, the flu is going around and the common cold all seems the most invasive recently. If you are feeling sick here are some illnesses and their symptoms. If you have the flu you will often deal with nausea and vomiting, body aching, 

congestion, sore throat, cough, and more. These symptoms can also be common for allergies and the common cold so it is best to go to your doctor and see what you have and how to take care of it. If your child, friend, or family member is feeling sick or seems to be sick, first check to see if they have any symptoms then encourage them to visit the doctors just because they may mistake the flu or some important sickness with just allergies or a cold. Having someone who is sick go around a school or in public could spread the sickness worse to workers, family, or friends. If you are concerned, check with your doctor and help yourself and the people around you.
