Tips for preventing swine flu

Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or use a tissue and dispose of the tissue in a covered trash bin.

Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcoholbased hand cleaners are also effective.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

If you get sick with influenza, stay home from work or school, public places and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

Clean shared space more often such as phone receivers, keyboards, steering wheels and office equipment.

Refrain from sharing personal items such as forks, spoons, toothbrushes and towels
