Stay Informed -Visit the Department of State Health Services site for flu information in Texas at Get Vaccinated -Get a flu vaccination now.  It’s the best way to protect yourself and others. Stop the Spread - Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.  Cover your coughs and sneezes.  Stay home if you’re sick.  Have a plan to care for sick family members at home. Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus.  It can cause mild to severe illness. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year. The 2014-15 seasonal flu vaccine is available throughout Texas. DSHS encourages everyone 6 months or older to get vaccinated yearly to protect yourself and others from the flu. For more information about the 2014-2015 Flu Season visit the CDC website at-
  • Seguin ISD Ebola information:

    Seguin ISD response to Ebola in Texas:   With the recent confirmation that two healthcare workers in Dallas have been infected with the Ebola virus and the original patient has died, we understand you may have concerns and questions: What is the Seguin ISD Ebola plan? Is my child at risk? Are we prepared? The risk of an Ebola case appearing in Seguin ISD is extremely low, according to experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local emergency management offices. However, we remain diligent in monitoring the situation and communicating with families as appropriate.  Seguin ISD is committed to the safety and health of all students and staff.   What is the Seguin ISD Ebola plan? The Seguin ISD Ebola plan starts with the same basic hygiene and healthy habit practices we encourage daily among all students and staff, such as frequent hand washing, covering your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing, and staying home if you are ill or with fever. In the unlikely event that a student or staff from Seguin ISD was to become ill with Ebola, the district would follow directives from local emergency management, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state health department officials. Those agencies would be in charge of any coordinated response. While the situation in Dallas has heightened awareness of Ebola, at this time, the health department has not issued a change of protocol for Seguin or Guadalupe County.    As with any emergency, the district would communicate vigorously with parents, staff, and students. Is my child at risk? According to all of the medical experts and world health officials, the risk of your child contracting Ebola in Seguin, Texas, is very low and nearly non-existent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website has excellent information about who is most at risk of Ebola , how the disease is transmitted , signs and symptoms , treatment , and prevention . Are we prepared? Yes. Part of the job of the school district is preparing for any type of emergency.  Seguin ISD has general emergency plans in place that include responses to health-related crises. The district also enjoys a close working relationship with local law enforcement, the county emergency management office, and county health officials.   Ebola Information Resources
  • Seguin ISD Enterovirus D68 Information:
    Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of more than 100 non-polio enteroviruses. This virus was first identified in California in 1962.  EV-D68 can cause mild to severe respiratory illness.
    • Mild symptoms may include fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, and body and muscle aches.
    • Severe symptoms may include wheezing and difficulty breathing. See  EV-D68 in the U.S., 2014  for details about infections occurring this year.
    Anyone with respiratory illness should contact their doctor if they are having difficulty breathing or if their symptoms are getting worse.  Since EV-D68 causes respiratory illness, the virus can be found in an infected person’s respiratory secretions, such as saliva, nasal mucus, or sputum. EV-D68 likely spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches a surface that is then touched by others.  In general, infants, children, and teenagers are most likely to get infected with enteroviruses and become ill.   Children with asthma may have a higher risk for severe respiratory illness caused by EV-D68 infection. There is no specific treatment for people with respiratory illness caused by EV-D68.  For mild respiratory illness, you can help relieve symptoms by taking over-the-counter medications for pain and fever. Aspirin should not be given to children.    There are no antiviral medications currently available for people who become infected with EV-D68. You can help prevent yourself from getting and spreading EV-D68 and other respiratory illnesses by following these steps:
    • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. See  Handwashing: Clean Hands Save Lives .
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact such as kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
    • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or shirt sleeve, not your hands.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    Also, see an infographic that shows  these prevention steps .  There are no vaccines for preventing EV-D68 infections.  Children with asthma are at risk for severe symptoms from EV-D68 and other respiratory illnesses. They should follow CDC’s guidance to maintain control of their illness during this time. CDC recommends:
    • Discuss and update your  asthma action plan  with your primary care provider.
    • Take your prescribed asthma medications as directed, especially long term control medication(s).
    • Be sure to keep your reliever medication with you.
    • Get a flu vaccine when available.
    • If you develop new or worsening asthma symptoms, follow the steps of your asthma action plan. If your symptoms do not go away, call your doctor right away.
    • Parents should make sure the child’s caregiver and/or teacher is aware of his/her condition, and that they know how to help if the child experiences any symptoms related to asthma.
