To prevent the spread of the flu and other contagious disease, the following steps can be taken:
- Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs, and stop the spread of germs.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth, which allows the germs to enter your body.
- 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. You will help prevent others from catching the illness.
- Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent others around you from getting sick.
