Benjamin Stoddert, like many other school systems is seeing an increase in the number of students and teachers experiencing symptoms of Viral Gastroenteritis Strep Throat and now Flu Symptoms. 

Viral Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the stomach, large and small intestines is an infection caused by a variety of viruses that result in vomiting or diarrhea.  It is often called “stomach flu”, although it is not caused by the influenza viruses. Symptoms are nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, low fever, headache, muscle aches, chills and tiredness.

Strep Throat is an infection caused by a bacterium called Group A Streptococcus. Symptoms are Fever, Sore throat and tender and swollen neck glands. 

         Influenza (also known as the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The flu is different from a cold. The flu usually comes on suddenly. People who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:

  • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills

  • Cough

  • Sore throat

  • Runny or stuffy nose

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue (tiredness)

  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

These illnesses are contagious and can spread quickly.  In an effort to stop the spread of these infections, we ask that you not return to work/school until you are totally symptom and fever free for 24 hours without the aids of a fever reducer. 


Prevention:


Frequent hand washing is the best way to reduce your chance of getting the infections. Thoroughly clean and disinfect any contaminated surfaces.

Strep throat can be prevented by covering the mouth when coughing or sneezing, wash hands after wiping or blowing nose, wash hands before preparing food.

 

Flu Shot given before you are exposed to the flu will aid in some protection.

                              See Your Doctor if you have any symptoms or for further information.
