From the mind of Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in Health, Swine Flu | Posted on 04-29-2009
Allow the Brew to get serious for a minute. This swine flu is no joke (as we’re told by CNN 24 hours a day). It’s time to do the common sense things your Grandma told you: wash your nasty hands, don’t eat/drink after folks, don’t go to work/school if you’re sick and -above all- quit kissing random people all willy-nilly.
Now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is out with its travel advisory
on the swine (or “H1N1″) flu. The CDC recommends avoiding all non-essential travel to Mexico. In other words, the hedonistic trip you planned to Cancun
can wait. Adjust your plans accordingly.
If you must travel, pack a mask. You know, like the one your manicurist wears down at the nail shop on 3rd. Ask her for one.
And lastly, wipe it down! Load up on the Purell, baby wipes (ask Terrence Howard for some) and anything alcohol-based that can kill germs on surfaces. No, that doesn’t mean pack your Hennessy to wipe down the tray table. Have some manners!
Be safe out there…this flu is spread through contact! By all means, keep eating your bacon. Life’s joy should not be stopped because a few people got the sniffles.
