Influenza – or the flu – can be a serious contagious disease, which is spread by droplet transmission through close contact with an infected person. Infected individuals are highly contagious and can transmit the virus for 24 hours before they show any symptoms.

Each year, there are approximately 3,500 deaths from influenza and its complications across Canada. Influenza causes by far the most deaths among vaccine-preventable diseases, outpacing all others combined. Hospitalized patients and seniors in residential care are more vulnerable to influenza than healthy adults.

The most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza is by getting a flu shot and washing your hands regularly. If you don’t get a flu shot, you will be expected to protect our residents by wearing a mask while you are in a health care facility during flu.
