Prevent The Spread Of Germs:
The flu virus is spread from person to person when an infected person cough, sneezes, or touches things that others use. Do these simple, effective things to help protect yourself and others:
- Cover Your Mouth And Nose When You Cough Or Sneeze. Please try to avoid using your hand! If you do, wash your hands as soon as possible. Cough into your sleeve or cover your mouth and nose with a tissue.
- Wash Your Hands. The best way to protect yourself from viruses is to wash your hands often. Soap and water are the best, but when they are not available, use alcohol based hand gel or disposable wipes.
- Don’t Touch Your Eyes, Nose, Or Mouth. The flu virus is often spread when a person touches something that has the virus on it and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.
- Stay Home When You Are Sick Or Have Flu Symptoms. Drink extra water, get plenty of rest, and check with your Health Care Provider as needed.
