"Many of the prevention measures people are following for H1N1 - such as frequent handwashing, using alcohol-based hand-sanitizers, and staying home when they're sick - should apply every winter, to every viral season," she says.

McAdam, MD, Ph.D., of the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Children's, were co-authors.
