A Word from Our Nurses: We have been seeing an increase in flu cases at GLOBE. In the interest of stopping this trend, please keep your child at home if he has fever along with cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea. This may well be the flu.
GLOBE requests that kids with a diagnosis of flu stay home for five days from onset of illness. This is also true of a “flu-like illness” diagnosis. As always, our fever-free-for-24-hours rule applies, as well.
