Health Advisory:  Flu is Widespread in Ohio

Alert graphic
January 31, 2019

Please be aware that there is widespread Flu activity in Ohio. The number of flu-associated hospitalizations are rising with 338 new hospitalizations during the first week of January compared to 166 during the last week of December. The season runs from October 2018 to May 2019. The number of flu cases typically peak between December and February.

Flu symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Although most people fully recover from the flu, some experience severe illness like pneumonia and respiratory failure, and the flu can sometimes be fatal.

You can protect yourself by getting vaccinated - see your primary care provider for the Flu shot if you haven't already had it.  Students who have the UC Student Health Insurance are covered and most plans cover preventative vaccines.

While vaccination provides the greatest protection against the flu, other effective ways to avoid getting or spreading it include: washing your hands, using hand sanitizer; covering your coughs and sneezes with tissues or by using your elbow; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when sick and until fever-free for 24 hours.

More information about flu and flu activity in Ohio is available at www.flu.ohio.gov

Please be aware that there is an ongoing hepatitis A outbreak in Ohio, with 44 cases in Hamilton County in the past 9 months.

Hepatitis A is a virus that causes severe liver inflammation, resulting in nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue and jaundice.  It is spread through food, water, and direct close contact with someone actively infected with the virus.
 
You can protect yourself by getting vaccinated - see your primary care provider for the two-shot series if you haven't already had it.  Students who have the UC Student Health Insurance are covered. Most plans cover preventative vaccines.  If you have a different health insurance provider, check with your plan to see if you are covered.  Good handwashing and universal contact precautions are always important!
