Expired Flu Treatments – The CDC has advised the Strategic National Stockpile Coordinator to retain all expired flu treatments. If there is a renewed H1N1 threat, the CDC assumes that the FDA will provide a new emergency use agreement (EUA). If you have any questions on this matter, please contact Alan Boudreau of the DPH at

Take these everyday steps to protect your health:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
