Cold and Flu Season is Here!

Things To Do To Prevent The Flu

-Avoid close contact when you are sick.  Keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too!

-Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow crack when coughing or sneezing.  Immediately wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

-Avoid touching your eyes,nose or mouth. Our hands carry lots of germs which can enter our body thru many mucous membranes.

-Stay home when you are sick.  You will help others from catching your illness.

-Wash your hands often.  This will help protect you from germs.

-Practice good health habits, such as be physically active, get plenty of sleep, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food.
