Preventing ‘Swine flu’
Follow these recommended flu precautions to help stave off H1N1:
- wash hands frequently – especially after you cough or sneeze; use soap and water when available or an alcohol based hand cleaner
- cough or sneeze into a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash immediately
- avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth – germs spread that way
- avoid using other employees’ phones, desks, work equipment, etc. if possible
If you are sick or have flu symptoms, contact your healthcare provider, stay home from work and limit contact with others. Follow the regular departmental process for notifying your supervisor.
