To prevent the flu:

· Stay home when you are sick – If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.

· 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.

· Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth – Germs are spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
