Flu Prevention Tips
The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands frequently can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
- If you are sick with flu symptoms, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.
- Cover our nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after use and wash your hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand rub.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.
- Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
