Q: What can you do to prevent the spread of flu?

A: There are certain good health habits that can help prevent the spread of flu. They are:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from other to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and dispose of the tissue afterward.
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Wash your hands after you cough or sneeze with soap and warm water, or an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
  • If you get the flu, stay home from work or school. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
