Visitor restrictions implemented To protect veterans and fam- ilies and to prevent the spread- ing of influenza-related illnesses, the St. Cloud VA Medical Center is implementing visitor restrictions in the Community Living Center. Visitors will be limited to imme- diate family members. Individuals who are ill or who may have been exposed to people with flu-like symptoms are asked to reconsider their visit. Additionally, young children should not visit Community Liv- ing Center residents until the out- break of influenza-related ill- nesses across the state subsides. Families of residents with spe- cial situations should consult with their treatment teams to arrange visits. "We understand these restric- tions are inconvenient, but they are necessary to protect the health of our residents, families, visi- tors and staff," said Denice Tracy, Infection Prevention Nurse. In addition to enforcing these restrictions, the St. Cloud VA Health Care System reminds vet- erans and families that every- one can help reduce the spread of influenza and other illnesses by taking a few simple steps, such as washing your hands often, cover- ing your cough, and staying home ify0u are sick. Getting vaccinated is an impor- tant measure to protect against the flu. The St. Cloud VA Medical Cen- ter and VA clinics in Alexandria, Brainerd, and Montevideo have flu vaccine available. Vaccinations are available to enrolled veterans during scheduled appointments, or from Primary Care Teams on a walk-in basis. Walk-ins mayhave a short wait. Protection from the flu with the vaccine depends on the per- son's immune response and the match of the flu vaccine to the cir- culating strains of flu viruses. It takes about two weeks for immu- nity to build up after receiving the flu vaccine, so the combination of vaccination, hand hygiene, cover- ing coughs and sneezes, social dis- tancing, and staying home when Page 19 Legal Notice NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING Notice is hereby given that the Clearwater River Watershed Dis- trict Board of Managers will be holding a special meeting on January 25, 2013, at 4:00 p.m. at the District office, located at 75 Elm Street East, Annandale, MN.
