- Washing your hands often with soap and water
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick
- Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that could be contaminated with germs like the flu virus
If you or someone in your household becomes sick with the flu, the following steps can help to limit spread to others:
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw away the tissue after use.
- Wash your hands often
- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible
- Stay home for at least 24-hours after fever is gone (without fever-reducing medicines) except to get medical care or other absolute necessities. You can still spread illness even when you think you are feeling better.
