Stop The Spread Of Germs

According to the Center for Disease Control you can help stop the spread of disease by doing the following:

  •  Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  •  Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  •  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  •  Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  •  If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  •  While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. · See Everyday Preventive Actions [257 KB, 2 pages] and Non-pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) for more information about actions, apart from getting vaccinated and taking medicine, that people and communities can take to help slow the spread of illnesses like influenza (flu).
