Tips for Preventing the Flu and Cold

Tips to prevent getting the fluIn the midst of flu season, it is imperative that we partake in preventative measures to avoid getting sick. We want you to remain healthy all year long, but even more so with the holiday season’s arrival. Gathered are important tips for avoiding getting sick:

  • One of the most important preventative measures you can take is to stay away from those who are sick or are presenting flu-like symptoms.
  • If you are feeling a cold or the flu coming on, stay home. Your boss would much rather you work from home or make up lost time than get everyone in the office sick.
  • Whenever you sneeze or cough, make sure to cover your mouth and nose, and wash your hands right after to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Try not to touch your face, eyes, mouth, and nose during flu season to avoid spreading germs.
  • The importance of washing your hands even more than usual cannot be stressed enough during this season!
  • Most importantly, practice overall healthy habits to avoid your immune system from weakening and inviting the flu or cold in.
