Please see the attached FAQ document prepared by the NYC Health Department to educate all New Yorkers regarding swine flu. This document, along with all press releases recently issued by the Department, is also available on our website: www.nyc.gov/health.

The most effective way to lower the risk of influenza transmission is for people with symptoms to stay home. All New Yorkers should cover their mouths when they cough. Additional precautions:

Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to avoid infecting them.

I also attached the recently completed Ready New York brochure regarding pandemic flu. This document is a valuable planning resource and is also available on the NYC Office of Emergency Managementís website: www.nyc.gov/oem.

Please distribute to other interested parties as appropriate.
