We have a lot of unwell youngsters in our community at the moment. Please remember to keep yourself/kids at home if are unwell with respiratory symptoms
Respiratory viruses like the RSV virus are highly contagious for up to 8days and can turn to pneumonia and bronchiolitis.
Under 2yr olds are particularly vulnerable and to protect them we need to isolate those who are unwell, reducing contact with them as much as possible.
Not all children will need to be seen or assessed by our clinicians as this can potentially spread the viruses further.
Keep unwell children at home, warm, well hydrated and rested. Call Amuri Health Centre if you have any concerns or for further advice 03 315 6328
