WITH HEALTH CONCERNS SO PREVALENT, WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
Avoid close contact - Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
Stay home when you are sick - If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.
Cover your mouth and nose - Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
Clean your hands - Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Review the CDC site on handwashing for additional information.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth - Germs spread when a person touches a contaminated object and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
Practice other good health habits - Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
