Little ones with cold or flu and the Family Centres

Hi everyone,

After hearing from several families about a summer cold/flu making its way through our community we want to remind everyone of our guidelines around when to avoid coming to the Family Centres.

Please stay home if you or your child have any of the following symptoms (guidelines based on recommendations from Interior Health Authority):
* coughing
* sneezing
* fever – please stay home for 24 hours after the fever is gone
* vomiting or diarrhea – please stay home for 24 hours after the last episode
* sore throat
* redness, swelling or discharge of of eyes, ears or skin

If a member of your family has any of these symptoms that are related to another health issue that is not contagious, we invite you to speak with a staff member to let us know.

We appreciate your support in helping to minimize the spread of illnesses to others.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 250-353-7691.

Thank you,

Sarah Evans
