Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and rub your hands together until dry.
Cover your coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze and always throw the used tissue in the trash. Remember to wash your hands after you cough or sneeze. You can also cover your cough and sneezes with your sleeves if you do not have a tissue available.
Stay home when you are ill to avoid spreading the virus to other people.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Influenza vaccination is recommended for everyone six months of age or older.
