coworkers surround paper

Flu season costs employers more than they might realize. Influenza leads to missed work days when employees stay home to recover or care for their children's illnesses. There's also a problem when an employee comes to work sick and is less productive, exposes other workers to illness, and even risks injury due to inattentiveness while working.

Get workplace planning information, factsheets, health education materials, and flyers and instructions for managing flu prevention in your business: CDC Seasonal Flu Information for Businesses & Employers
