Schley County CHEART meets
On Jan. 24, the Schley County CHEART held its first quarterly meeting for 2018 at the Schley County Courthouse.
Kristy Smith, Schley County health nurse, called the meeting to order.
There were people from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center as well as the District Health Department, Schley County Schools, Schley County Health board, law enforcement, emergency medical services and others were present.
There were 17 in attendance.
The main discussion at the meeting was about the flu that is going around now. Help yourselves as well as your family by getting the flu shot. Then when you return home from being around others, wash your hands and then use hand sanitizers. Be sure that the sanitizer has an alcohol-base.
The best thing to do is to stay home and not be around others while they are sick.
