I have not been exposed

You answered "NO," indicating that you have not recently been exposed to an individual who has, or who is suspected of having, influenza. You have completed the screening. Please continue reading for our evaluation and recommendations.

Our Recommendation

According to public health guidelines, YOU HAVE NOT HAD A SIGNIFICANT EXPOSURE TO INFLUENZA, AND THE CDC DOES NOT RECOMMEND PREVENTIVE OR PROPHYLACTIC TREATMENT IN YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. However, you should watch for the development of influenza symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, nausea, diarrhea, lethargy) over the next 1 to 7 days.
