Tips to help stop the spread of germs at home, work, and school:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or a sleeve.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water to help protect yourself from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
