Take common-sense steps to limit the spread of germs. Make good hygiene a habit

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Put used tissues in a waste basket.
  • Cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve if you don't have a tissue.
  • Clean your hands after coughing or sneezing. Use soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Stay at home if you are sick.
  • Don't smoke.

It is always a good idea to practice good health habits

  • Eat a balanced diet. Be sure to eat a variety of foods, including plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grain products. Also include low-fat dairy products, lean meats, poultry, fish, and beans. Drink lots of water and go easy on salt, sugar, alcohol, and saturated fat.
  • Exercise on a regular basis and get plenty of rest.
