Flu Prevention Tips
Please keep in mind the following preventive measures to help stop the spread of flu:
- Wash your hands often.
- Use tissues and discard them immediately.
- Stay home if you have a fever or a cough.
- Avoid contact with other people who are sick.
- Clean common household surfaces often - refrigerator door, faucet handles, etc… and especially those that young children come into contact with.
