PREVENTION

 

Everyday healthy actions you can do to help prevent H1N1 flu (swine flu) include:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often, especially after you cough or sneeze. An alcohol based hand sanitizer can also be used.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and discard of the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth as germs can spread easily that way.
  • Avoid contact with those who are sick as influenza is thought to be mainly spread from person-to-person through coughing and sneezing of those who are infected.
  • If you’re sick, stay home from school or work to keep others from getting infected.

If you get sick and have any of the following warning signs you should seek emergency medical care:
