- Stay at home if you are sick.
- Wear your mask if you have continuing symptoms (and a negative covid test).
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze, and throw it away.
- Try to keep your hands away from your face and eyes. Cold and flu viruses enter the body through your nose, eyes, and mouth.
- Stay away from crowds when people in your community have any type of the flu!
- When you have cold or flu symptoms, clean and disinfect telephones, door handles, keyboards, and light switches
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, rubbing the hands together for 20 seconds and rinsing with water. Dry hands with a paper towel and throw it away. Proper and frequent handwashing is your best protection against disease.
