TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF DURING WINTER FLU AND COLD SEASON

Flu poster

The CDC advises that we follow these tips to help prevent respiratory illness:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of tissue in trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
