BURLINGTON — If you have symptoms of flu and are at increased risk for complications (young children, people 65 and older, pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions such as asthma), contact your doctor or health care provider.
That advice comes from the Vermont Department of Health.
Flu symptoms include fever, headache, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and body aches. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can occur but are more common among children than adults.

Sometimes all you need is to be
asked, to say what you’d store
in a metal box--bury, hide, lock
in a safe. Anywhere what you choose
could be found in a day, a hundred
years from now. By somebody
who still has your name. Who may not
know what they’re seeing,
