H1N1 Tip For Trick Or Treaters
Trick-or-treaters should probably keep their hands out of the candy bowl this weekend because of the ongoing H1N1 flu pandemic. It’s just one way that experts suggest will keep children from getting swine flu on Halloween. Health officials hope parents will distribute candy instead of allowing children to grab their treats out of candy bowls. That’s because H1N1 can be spread by touching something with the virus on it and then touching the nose or mouth. H1N1 is similar to seasonal flu and can be spread through coughing or sneezing by infected individuals.
