According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this year, 2013-2014, is going to be an active flu season. To help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu, the CDC recommends the following “Healthy Habits“:
1. Avoid close contact: Avoid close contact with people who are sick, or are showing signs of being sick. When you’re sick, keep your distance from other who are healthy to help prevent them from getting sick too.
2. Stay home when you are sick: Talk to your employer before you get sick. Check to see what your company policies are on “Sick Stay”. If possible, stay home when you’re sick. Don’t go out to work, school, or to run errands when you have the flu. By staying home, and away from people, you can help prevent others from catching your illness.
3. Cover your mouth and nose: Be sure to cover your mouth when you cough, and your nose when you sneeze. Simple actions can really help to stop the spread of germs and illnesses.
4. Wash your hands: Cleaning your hands will help protect you, and others, from germs. Tip: Hum the “Happy Birthday” song while washing your hands, that should be enough time. If soap and running water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub or sanitizer.
5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth: Germ causing illnesses are often spread from person to person when you touch something that is contaminated and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth. Be sure to wipe down shared office equipment, such as phones, keyboards, etc.
6. Practice other good health habits: Clean, wash, and disinfect any and all frequently touched surfaces in your home, at work or school; especially when someone is sick. In addition, be sure to get plenty of sleep, drink lots of fluids, manage your stress, and eat healthy.
