Helpful tips to Prevent the Flu
Keep antibacterial soap and alcohol based sanitizer at hand. With the combination of these two germ killing products, the flu won’t stand a chance!
The easiest tip is to try and avoid people who are sick. There’s no need to run away screaming, but kindly keep your distance.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as these are the highways in which germs travel the quickest. Consider them the autobahn to your immune system.
Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are most commonly used such as elevator buttons, desktops, door handles and telephones.
Lastly, if you do get caught with the bug, do your coworkers the service of staying home. The CDC recommends any infected adult or child remain home at least 24 hours after the fever has subsided, except to seek medical care or other necessities.
