The Florida Department of Health has reported a rise in influenza-like illnesses in Martin County. 

Influenza (flu) is a very contagious respiratory disease that can cause mild or severe illness. Taking precautions, such as getting a flu shot, washing your hands often and covering coughs and sneezes can help prevent the flu from spreading.

Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose and body aches.

If your child becomes sick with flu-like illness, please keep them at home and contact your doctor as soon as possible to find out treatment options.
