- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Cough or sneeze into the bend of your arm if you don’t have a tissue.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. The hand sanitizer should contain at least 60% alcohol.
- If you think you have the flu, stay home until your fever is gone at least 24 hours without a fever reducer.
