Take Everyday Preventive Actions

Everyday Preventive Actions YOU Can Take to Help Prevent the Spread of Flu:

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze-throw the tissue away after you use it.

Stay away as much as you can from people who are sick.

If you get the flu, stay home from work or school. If you are sick, do not go near other people so that you don't make them sick too.

Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If you are not near water, use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.

Try not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs often spread this way.

These actions can help prevent the spread of influenza and other respiratory viruses during cold and flu season.
