I’ve seen the news coverage of the pandemic in the last couple of weeks, but I’d never heard anyone mention how to read an influenza alert.
The flu is a big deal.
People are very stressed out about it.
It’s been linked to respiratory illnesses, heart attacks and strokes.
So it’s important to understand what’s happening.
There are two ways to read the alert: one is to scan the top right of the page, and the other is to click on the red alert icon on the bottom left.
The former way is more accurate, and easier to read, because you’re in control of where the dots are.
When the alert is showing on the left side of the screen, you can click on one of the dots to take you to the next page.
There’s no way to miss it.
The alert itself is very short.
The last thing you need to do is scroll down to find out how much time it’s taking you to read through it.
In fact, you probably won’t read the entire alert.
If you’re going to read it, the important thing to know is that it’s about an hour long.
The second way to read is to look at the top left of the alert, and look for the red “alert icon” next to the alert.
Here, you’ll see three dots: the “F” and “I” marks, the word “alert,” and the word STOP.
It will say STOP in the bottom right of your screen.
When you click on it, you will see a countdown timer.
This timer is important.
You need to have enough time to read every word on the alert before it expires.
Once you’re done reading, the alert will be gone.
If, after reading it, it’s still taking you too long to read each word, click the red STOP button to end the countdown.
In my experience, the longer you click the STOP button, the more time you’ll have to read.
This can be very useful if you’re stuck at home with a family or if you’ve got kids who are having trouble staying on track.
If this is the first time you’ve seen a flu warning, you may not be sure how to interpret the alerts, or how to make sense of them.
For example, you might not be able to tell if the word PENDING is a “pause” or if it means you’re about to get a flu shot, or if the PENDED alert means that your child is showing signs of influenza, or that you should have a flu vaccination if you haven’t yet.
But you can figure out these things if you know what the word means.
