Influenza and Norovirus Update
The flu season continues as there is an increase in the number of confirmed influenza cases and reports of flu-like illness locally and nationally. Flu vaccinations are available through Occupational Health Services (OHS). Staff who work in patient care areas and have not been vaccinated must wear a surgical mask. Staff will be notified when masks are no longer necessary. In addition, your help is needed to prevent hospital outbreaks of norovirus and other viral gastrointestinal (GI) illnesses. If you develop GI illness symptoms, do not come to work. If these symptoms develop while at work, do not continue your shift and make arrangements to go home immediately. Call OHS at 617-732-6034 to report your GI illness. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to learn more.
