Flu and Boston

This January, there is an exceptionally high incidence of seasonal flu in Boston. You should be aware that a medical emergency has been declared in the city of Boston due to flu.

The best protection from the flu is a flu vaccine. However, careful handwashing, avoiding coughing or sneezing on others and avoiding being coughed or sneezed upon, and adequate rest and nutrition, can help you avoid illness or support fighting off infection. We urge everyone at Arisia to take good care of your health this weekend.

Because of this year's exceptional situation, we have modified our rollover policy. See the registration page for details.
