  • Avoid close contact
    Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick
    If possible, stay home from work or school and avoid running errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose
    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Wash your hands often
    This will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
    Germs are often spread when you touch something contaminated with germs and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
