Virginia Creates Online Videos On Preventing Flu

Parents and educators in Virginia now have another way to learn more about preventing the spread of H1N1 swine flu and seasonal flu.

Virginia's Departments of Education and Health have collaborated to produce online videos for parents and educators. The videos are available on the Department of Education's website, and both agencies are asking school divisions around the state to post links to the videos and to e-mail them to parents and employees.

In a statement, Virginia's health commissioner, Karen Remley, says they offer practical steps on how to limit the flu's reach, steps she says can have a real impact on how many children get sick.

Among other suggestions, the videos emphasize that students and school staff who feel ill should stay home until they've been fever-free for at least 24 hours.
