This is a provincially managed, bilingual patient registry for New Brunswickers without a family doctor. call Tele-Care at 811 to register OR online at gnb.ca/PatientConnectNB

Have the FLU, a COLD, or maybe a STOMACH VIRUS?
Did you know some viruses can live on surfaces anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days!
Here are a few tips to help prevent catching or spreading a cold, the flu, pertussis or a stomach virus:
- WASH your hands with WARM & SOAPY water thoroughly and frequently.
- Use hand sanitizer (60 to 90% alcohol based) when you do not have access to wash your hands.
- If you are sick try to isolate yourself from others when possible to avoid spreading germs.
- Cough and sneeze into the bend of your arm, not your hand, to prevent spreading germs to others.
- Discard tissues into a waste basket.
- Clean and disinfect regularly using household cleaners, areas that are touched frequently such as keyboards, doorknobs, sink water tap handles, phones, desktop surfaces, etc.
- Get your flu shot, still available at the Student Health Centre.
- Keep your system strong: eat healthy foods, be physically active, get enough sleep, practice stress management techniques and refrain from smoking.
