- Get Vaccinated: Vaccination is the first step in flu prevention. However, even after getting vaccinated, you should also follow simple steps to help prevent the spread of the flu virus – and other potentially harmful bacteria and viruses – in the office and at home.
- Wash Hands Frequently: Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice).
- Do the Elbow Cough: Cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands to help prevent the spread of germs by touch.
- Follow Good Health Guidelines: Eat right, exercise and get plenty of sleep to help boost your body’s ability to fight the effects of colds and flu.
