Healthy Habits to Prevent the Flu
Here are a few steps to protect yourself from the flu:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
- Wash your hands often. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when you touch something that is contaminated and then touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
