Prevent Respiratory Illness - It's in your hands!

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If you don’t have soap and water, use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol based.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • Stay home when you’re sick, and keep your children home when they’re sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
  • Try not to touch your face with unwashed hands.
  • Don’t touch or shake hands with people who are sick .

What makes you click?
