For inquires about possible school closure [not recommended]
The Department of Health does not recommend school closures in response to increased influenza activity. Actions taken in response to significant staff absences (which might raise logistical or safety concerns) would be at the discretion of school officials. The best strategies for preventing the transmission of influenza in a school setting remain getting vaccinated, sound personal hygiene practice, staying home if you do become sick, and routine cleaning.
If you have additional questions please contact your School Liaison at the Office of Local Health.
