Preventing Illness Among Household Members 

Limit visitors: Those not essential for patient care should not enter the home while persons are actively ill with the flu.

Household members should self-monitor for illness (fever, cough, and achiness).  Over the counter medications such as Tylenol or ibuprofen, may relieve some symptoms.  For young children, Pedialyte will provide electrolytes and help prevent dehydration.  Having popsicles on hand may also be useful for children who are ill.
