Simple Solutions

Washing your hands with soap and water or using a gel-based hand sanitizer is the easiest way to keep flu viruses and germs at bay. If you are sick, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and use a tissue or your inner elbow to prevent germ “droplets” from spreading. If you can stay home from work or school to get well, do so.
