HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM COLDS AND FLU

1. When sneezing, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or the bend of your elbow (not your bare hands)

2. Wash your hands frequently, and avoid touching your mouth, face, or eyes.

3. Stay away from people who are sick. The flu is caught mostly from air droplets from sneezes or coughs, but also from touching contaminated surfaces and putting your hands near your face.

4. Stay home if you are ill. People are contagious one day before symptoms and signs appear, and up to 5-7 days afterward. Do not return to school/work unless you have been fever-free for 24 hrs without fever medication.

5. GET A FLU VACCINE
