H1N1 Virus FAQ's

Information for RSVP volunteers relating to Swine Flu (N1H1)*


What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people?

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Body aches

  • Chills and fatigue

A significant number of people who have been infected with this virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting.

How can I protect my health?

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.) Keep away from others as much as possible to keep from making others sick.

When should I Get Medical Help? Emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention.

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  • Sudden dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
