End of the second wave of Influenza A (H1N1) in Québec
On January 7, 2010, the Québec Director of Public Health announced the end of the second wave of Influenza A (H1N1) in the province.
Educational institutions may therefore stop implementing the specific preventive measures established since the start of the second wave and go back to applying the usual measures, particularly those concerning the maintenance of school premises and equipment.
However, educational institutions and school organizations are urged to have their staff and students continue with the various health protection measures that have been established, such as hand washing and respiratory etiquette. These measures are also effective in curtailing the spread of the seasonal flu virus and other illnesses.
