What are some general prevention tips? 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water, especially after you cough or sneeze.   Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective. 
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze.  Throw the used tissue away afterward.  Remember:  one sneeze, one tissue.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.  Germs spread that way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who have a flu-like illness (i.e., stay about six feet away).
  • If you are sick with a flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home until you have been fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medications.  A temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees Celsius) is a fever. 
What other steps you could take? 
  • Promote good hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette: 
    • Posters/signs.  CDC’s Cover Your Cough.  Please see http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/covercough.htm for links to signs and brochures.
    • Tissues/facemasks.  Provide tissues or facemasks, such as procedure masks (have ear loops) or surgical masks (have ties), to students and facility visitors who are coughing or sneezing so that they can cover their nose and mouth.
    • Wastebaskets.  Provide wastebaskets or no-touch receptacles for disposing of used tissues.
    • Handwashing.  Encourage frequent handwashing, and provide handwashing supplies where sinks are located (soap may be either plain or antimicrobial).  Provide dispensers of alcohol-based hand cleaners in other locations. Encourage children to wash their hands before eating breakfast & lunch.
    • Keep distance.  Encourage coughing persons to sit at least three feet away from others, if tolerated.  (Sick persons should stay at least six feet away from others.)
    • Website.  See also http://www.cdc.gov/flu/professionals/infectioncontrol/resphygiene.htm.
    • Keep surfaces clean.  Keep countertops, and other frequently touched surfaces such as door handles and light switches, clean at all times.  Any disinfectant registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is used according to the manufacturer’s directions will be effective at eliminating the flu virus (e.g., Pine-Sol, Mr. Clean, or other household cleaners that say “disinfectant” on the label).  A bleach-to-water solution of between 1:100 and 1:10 may also be used. See www.epa.gov/oppad001/influenza-disinfectants.html for a list of EPA-registered products effective against influenza.
  • Other household tips.  Don’t share linens, eating utensils and dishes belonging to ill persons without washing thoroughly first.  Wash linens with household laundry soap and tumble dry on a hot setting.   Wash eating utensils and dishes in a dishwasher or by hand with soap and water.
