Much has been reported in the media about the novel H1N1 influenza strain that has spread rapidly throughout the world. While this strain of influenza (flu) is relatively mild for most people and similar to the seasonal flu there are some differences. Compared to seasonal flu which is most severe among older adults, the age groups affected with H1N1 are generally younger. Our school community is taking precautions now to lessen the impact the virus will have on our schools as we move through the year.
Below are links that provide information about the H1N1 flu virus, how to protect yourself and others, and what you do if you become ill. Students and faculty/staff can also navigate to the pages below for Willingboro Schools-specific information regarding H1N1 planning.
