swine flu 8 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 8  
good advice from the Mythlore bods - have cut & paste it here (think the antiseptic wipe/spray for masks is a sensible precaution even without the possibility of swine flu!):

Dear all,

We've had an email from a player concerned about the current Swine Flu
situation and how it will affect the Reunion weekend. Having spoken to my
wife, who just so happens to be a GP, I impart to you the following advice:

DON'T PANIC!

Everyone should check out the NHS DIRECT site for the full info as a matter
of course at:


www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Pandemic-flu/Pages/QA.aspx



However, the basic advice is this: If anyone has cold/flu-like symptoms they
should stay away in the first place - to be honest this is just common
sense, pandemic or not.

Everyone should take their own disinfectant wet-wipes/spray if they're
concerned - we supply soap and paper towels in the toilet area as a matter
of course, but we'll sort out something with an antiseptic quality for each
toilet block too - please use it.

With regards to the Monster crew and the wearing of masks: we've decided
that it would indeed be a sensible precaution to provide non alcohol-based
antiseptic wipes and spray for the crew - the Ref will be in charge of that,
and it would probably be common sense to give them a quick spray/wipe before
putting them on as it will be impossible to restrict one mask to one person
for the whole weekend.

With regards to the sharing of drinks: obviously this isn't specifically an
LRP thing - in the current 'climate' it's common sense to take precautions
wherever we are. However we agree it would be sensible to suggest not
sharing bottles, or drinking directly from them if the contents are being
passed around. We can certainly suggest this in the initial briefings.

The most basic thing is - WASH YOUR HANDS AND USE A TISSUE!

I'd hate to think that this would engender an atmosphere of paranoia in
anyone, but hopefully it may help people take some basic everyday
precautions that - to be honest - we should take anyway.

Remember - the Doctor says "CATCH IT! KILL IT! BIN IT!"

Now let's all be sensible and have fun.

My alternative suggestion, would be that we should check everybody for symptoms of swine flu, and if we find anybody who displays "swine like symptoms" we should burn them at a stake in the middle of the site in a mediaeval style...

This would create a more "in role" solution to the problem...
