As you can see there are many people concerned, others who think twitter is taking the issue to extremes and others who are sharing informative links and sometimes humorous responses.

What it boils down to is to use common sense; if you feel sick stay home, if you have a sudden fever, diarrhea, nausea, body aches, symptoms of the flu, stay home, and if symptoms worsen see your Dr. for medication w/in 24 hours. To prevent catching the virus make sure you wash hands regularly, use hand sanitizers, cough or sneeze into Kleenex and other common sense habits. Some of the links above will lead you to helpful resources, along with humorous resources to help keep you and your family on the healthy track.
