6 Tips to Combat the Flu
As every parent knows, germs can spread like a flash fire when youngsters get together.
What’s a parent to do? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, good hygiene is important to help prevent the spread of germs. The influenza is spread by coughing, sneezing and unclean hands.
Here are some tips from the CDC to help combat the flu:
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
- Put used tissues in the trash.
- Clean your hands after coughing or sneezing. Wash with soap and water, or with alcohol-based hand cleaner.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- If you get sick, stay home from work or school, and limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them. People should stay home at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100°F), or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
