 Stay Healthy

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze—throw the tissue away immediately after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If you are not near water, use an alcohol-based (60-95%) hand cleaner.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • If you get the flu, stay home from work, school, and social gatherings. Help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs often spread this way.
