Flu Season Preparation Comes Early
Date:8/31/2009

can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza. Whether it's the seasonal flu, common cold, or H1N1 (swine) flu, the best thing to do to stay healthy is practice good hygiene, including:
- Frequently wash your hands with soap and water. When hand washing is not possible, use antiseptic hand gels that contain alcohol.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Throw out the tissue in the nearest wastebasket and then immediately wash hands with soap and water.
- Stay at least three feet away from people who are coughing or sneezing.
- After contact with someone who is ill, immediately wash your hands.
- Keep sick children at home, and teach them good hygiene habits.

For more information on preventing and treating the seasonal flu and H1N1 (swine) flu, visit http://www.cdc.gov/. Massachusetts residents looking for up-to-date flu information should call the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, toll free, at 866-627-7968 or visit www.mass.gov/dph/flu.
