How can I Help Prevent the Spread of the Flu?
Vaccinate! Vaccination is the most important thing you can do to prevent illness for both yourself and others.
You can also practice good habits to help prevent the spread of the flu:
Limit Contact! Try to avoid close contact with sick people. If you are sick, limit contact with others as much as possible so that you don’t infect someone else.
Stay Home! Stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone, except to get medical care or for other necessities. Your fever should be gone without using fever-reducing medicine.
Don’t Touch! Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
Use Those Tissues! Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. If you don’t have a tissue, don’t sneeze into your hands! Sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
Wash! Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
Clean it Up! Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
