This is the best way to decrease the spread of infection. Please wash your hands frequently for 30 seconds, ensuring you are washing between your cuticles, fingers and fronts and backs of hands.

Ensure your immunizations are up to date, including the annual flu shot (for everyone over 6 months of age). The flu shot protects against the most common strains of the influenza virus. Influenza is an illness with fever, cough, body aches, fatigue, etc. which can be very serious, especially in seniors, children and those who are immunocompromised. The 2022 flu vaccine is an excellent match for the most dominant strain of influenza circulating. Receiving your COVID-19 vaccine and boosters helps to protect against hospitalization and serious illness.

If you are unwell, stay home until your symptoms resolve to avoid spread. This is especially true for those visiting loved ones in the hospital and children. If you are still feeling unwell and around others or in a public place, please wear a mask. A mask must be worn at all times in THP hospitals.
