Seasonal Health Tips

This holiday season, remember
to
handle and prepare food safely
As you prepare holiday meals,
keep yourself and your family safe
from food-related illness.
Wash hands and surfaces often.
Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating surfaces. Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrigerate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out for more than two hours.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. Does the hustle and bustle of the holiday season leave you feeling stressed and exhausted?

We're all faced with the demands of having the perfect holiday season, but it's important to remember to put your health at the top of your to do list.

Give yourself the gift of good health, by practicing proper hygiene, getting plenty of rest and avoiding close contact with others when you feel sick.

Also, be sure to get your annual flu shot.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health will be hosting free presentations to adults including everything you need to know about protecting yourself from the flu and other illnesses.

Presentations will be held at the Atlantic County Library in Galloway Township on January 5 at 7 PM and January 6 at 11 AM. For more information, call 645-5933. That's 645-5933 or visit the County Web site at www.aclink.org.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health: wishing you a safe and healthy Christmas and Hanukkah season.
