You can also keep from getting and spreading the flu by remembering the four C’s:
CLEAN– Wash your hands often. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
COVER– Cover your cough. Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, use the crook of your elbow.
CONTAIN– Contain germs by staying away from others who are sick. If you do get sick, stay at home until you’re well again so you don’t spread more germs.
CALL– Call or see your doctor if you or your child has a fever higher than 100 degrees.
