Preventing the Flu

Health officials said in addition to vaccinations, good health habits is the best way to stop the spread of germs and to prevent illnesses like the flu:

  • Always cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue—then throw the tissue away.
  • Cough or sneeze into the inside of the elbow.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze and before you eat.
  • Alcohol hand sanitizer (minimum 60% alcohol) will help if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth. These are places germs can enter the body easily.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick, too.
  • Monitor yourself and your family for symptoms of fever which include chills, headache, sore throat, cough, body aches, and vomiting or diarrhea.
  • If you are sick, stay home from work, school or other public places until you are feeling well.
