This educational website can serve as a tool to prevent the spread of colds and seasonal flu. It provides guidance for you and your family when planning in the event of a pandemic influenza.  There are two entertaining and educational videos on developing healthy habits and one presentation on influenza (seasonal, avian and pandemic) that can be viewed on the website.  

 

Citizens are encouraged to download informative flyers and brochures that include useful contact information for health and safety authorities in Morris and Somerset Counties
