You're most likely thinking about summer school or vacation plans right now and not about the upcoming flu season. In fact, this is a good time to plan on how to best protect your employees, students, their families, and your community from the potentially serious respiratory illness. Each year, more than 200,000 people in the U.S. are admitted to hospitals for flu-related ailments, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Seasonal flu cases usually peak during the fall or winter.
