On October 24, President Barack Obama signed a proclamation declaring swine flu a national emergency.

These guidelines offer detailed advice on the following recommendations:

  • Get vaccinated against the flu;
  • Stay home when sick;
  • Conduct daily health checks;
  • Separate ill children and staff;
  • Encourage hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette;
  • Perform routine environmental cleaning;
  • Encourage early treatment;
  • Consider selective early childhood program closures.
