Flu Prevention 101: Be Prepared!

We have all heard that getting the flu vaccine is the number one method for prevention of infection from the flu virus. Infection control basics are also common sense methods of preventing the spread of illness.

Starting with the advice we all heard from our mothers… WASH YOUR HANDS!! Simply touching a surface like a telephone, computer keyboard, door knob or grocery cart contaminated by someone who has the flu can spread the virus. Viruses then pass from your hand to your nose or mouth. Keep your hands away from your face and mouth!

The flu is also spread if someone around you coughs or sneezes. The virus is spread through the air and enters your body through your nose or mouth. When you cough or sneeze cover your mouth with your elbow or your upper arm instead of your hand.
