With the CDC confirming that H1N1 (Swine Flu) has surfaced in over 5 states, everyone is on alert. A mutated strain of Influenza, H1N1 (Swine Flu) is contagious and dangerous if not treated quickly and effectively. However, there are ways to prevent getting sick.
1) Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
3) Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
4) Try to avoid close contact with sick people- Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people. If you get sick, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
