Chanuka is in the air

Chanuka is here! The yom tov brings simcha and kedusha to all mishpachos. Families get together and spend time with each other. Yeshivos hold annual mesibas bringing talmidim together. Friends and neighbors host chanuka parties, special programming for children all over town. Stores add to the flavor with chanuka sales and free donuts. Its a time for the Tzibbur to forget the long winter nights to forget the darkness and let the light of chanukah spread kedusha and lechtikeit to all.

Shigella outbreak - prevention is key

 Yes, Shigella is going around, Shigella are bacteria that can infect the digestive tract and cause a wide range of symptoms, from diarrhea, cramping, vomiting, and nausea, to more serious complications and illnesses. Infections, called shigellosis, sometimes go away on their own; while other times, antibiotics can shorten the course of the illness.  Shigellosis, usually affects kids 2 to 4 years old and rarely infects infants younger than 6 months old.  These infections are very contagious and can be prevented with good hand washing practices.
The best way to prevent the spread of Shigella is by frequent and careful hand washing with soap, especially after they use the toilet and before they eat. This is especially important in childcare settings.

If you're caring for a child who has diarrhea, wash your hands before touching other people and before handling food. (Anyone with a diarrhea should not prepare food for others.) Be sure to frequently clean and disinfect any toilet used by someone with shigellosis.
