We have been informed that one of our students in Year 1 has a confirmed case of Influenza A.
Attached is a fact sheet from SA Health providing details including symptoms, infectious period, treatment and prevention.
Please note the Infectious period (time during which an infected person can infect others) is usually from 1 day before onset of symptoms until 7 days after the onset of symptoms. After 5 days the level of infectiousness is probably very low, however some people, especially children and people with weakened immune systems, might be able to infect others for a longer time.
We hope that any student or family member who is unwell with the ‘flu’ can make a speedy recovery.
