If you feel under the weather, you should follow these tips to help prevent spreading it to others
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds to remove germs from your hands, and help young children do the same. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end—twice.
Always cough and sneeze into a tissue or your upper shirt sleeve, completely covering your mouth and nose.
Here are a few things you SHOULD DO:
- Cough & Sneeze into a tissue
- Immediately dispose your used tissues safely
