5 Ways to Help Prevent the Flu (and other viruses)
- [flu handwash]Wash your hands, especially before eating, and after working on a shared computer, desk, or other item. Carrying a hand sanitizer (such as Purell) can be helpful if you are often short on time or water!
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Touching these after coming into contact with germs can allow the germs to enter the body and cause illness.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
- Wash your hands! It cant be said enough. Washing your hands (or sanitizing with a hand sanitizer) is one of the best ways to keep from passing and receiving viruses.
