Flu prevention tips
wash your hands

Increase your chances of staying healthy:

  • Get a vaccine.
  • Wash your hands often. Alcohol-based hand cleaners also work well.
  • Keep your hands away from your nose, eyes, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Get plenty of rest, eat healthy foods, and drink lots of fluids.
  • Avoid close contact with others who are sick.

Use these preventative measures to help stop the spread of flu:

  • Wash your hands often.
  • Use tissues and discard them immediately.
  • Stay home if you have a fever or cough.
  • Avoid contact with others who are sick.
  • Clean common household surfaces often - refrigerator door, faucet handles, doorknobs, telephone, etc.

The majority of flu cases can be treated with over-the-counter medication, rest, and re-hydration.
