5 Tips for Flu Season

 

Did you know that 80% of infectious illnesses are spread through hands and surfaces?

Reduce cross-contamination of germs by keeping a clean and hygienic environment.

 

Follow these 5 simple tips to stay healthy during this flu season!

 

Tip 1: Wash Hands Often

Wash hands, especially before eating, after using the restroom, and after being outside. Use soap and warm water for 20 seconds.

This is the minimum recommended time to get your hands clean. It is also important to dry your hands with a fresh, clean towel.

 

Tip 2: Get Immunized

The flu virus can spread fast, so get vaccinated.

You can get vaccinated for H1N1 and the seasonal flu at the same time, in the same shot.

 

Tip 3: Use Anti-Viral Facial Tissue

Some cold and flu viruses can live up to 24 hours on regular tissues, so use an Anti-Viral facial tissue that will kill 99.9% of common cold viruses.

 

Tip 4: Cough or Sneeze into your Elbow

One sneeze can spray up to 3,000 infection droplets into the air at more than 100 MPH. If you don’t have a tissue handy, use the inner part of your sleeve at the elbow. Do you part to help reduce the fast spread of germs.

 

Tip 5.: Stay Home if Sick

Don’t get your workspace sick by showing up sick. Stay home if your’re sick. The work will wait, and you won’t spread your illness to coworkers.

 

Reduce cross-contamination of germs by keeping a clean and hygienic environment.

 

You can also fight viruses and stay protected with Curad Anti-Viral Face Masks.
