Prevent the Spread of the Flu

 

Protect yourself and loved ones against the flu by following the simple steps below:

Get vaccinated.

  • The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older once a year.

Cover coughs and sneezes.

  • Use tissues, not your hands, to cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Throw tissue away and wash your hands immediately.
  • If you don’t have tissue, cough or sneeze into the inside of your elbow.

Wash hands frequently.

  • Wet hands with warm water and add soap.
  • Scrub for 20 seconds.
  • Rinse well and dry with a paper towel. Use a paper towel to turn faucets off and to open restroom doors.
  • Use alcohol based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

Keep sick people away from healthy people.

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid large crowds during the flu season.

Clean commonly shared items.
