Flu Precautions

I just sent the following email to the students in our dojo:


The H1N1 (Swine Flu) is present in Hawaii and the seasonal flu is expected to increase in the upcoming weeks and months. Please be considerate of other students and stay home if you have any cold or flu symptoms. These can include:
  • fever
  • cough
  • runny nose or stuffy nose
  • sore throat
  • body aches
  • headache
  • chills
  • fatigue or tiredness
  • diarrhea
  • vomiting
If in doubt, seek medical attention, and stay home. There will always be another class (and you can practice at home if you feel well enough). Come back to class about one week after you are completely better and your doctor says that it is OK to safely resume physical activity.

I have already gotten my seasonal flu shot. Please discuss the seasonal and H1N1 shots with your doctor.

Let's all try our best to be healthy!
