Swine Flu Information for Schools

This section provides advice and updates on how to prevent the spread of swine influenza and what to do if a child, or member of staff, develops flu-like symptoms.

The public can take simple but effective measures to protect themselves by covering their noses and mouths when they cough and sneeze and then put their tissue in a bin and wash their hands.

The message is simple; "Catch it. Bin it. Kill it."
