Caring for Someone Sick
When caring for people who have flu, avoid face-to-face contact if possible. If the person you are caring for is at high-risk for flu-related complications https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/high_risk.htm and gets very sick, call their doctor. They may need antiviral drugs to treat flu.
