The Power is in Your Hands
In the midst of the cold and flu season, you can take control of your own well-being and help protect those who live and work around you. By practicing a few, simple handwashing behaviors, you can decrease the risk of contracting and spreading respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses – like H1N1 and the seasonal flu.
Keep Germs Out
Germs enter your body through direct contamination of the eyes, nose and mouth… at the hands of your own hands! Frequent handwashing is one sure way to safeguard against illness. Another way to battle germs is through flu vaccinations which help lower your reaction to viruses. Talk to your Healthcare professional about a plan to keep you and your family healthy this winter.
Four Simple Steps to Stop Germs from Spreading:
• Wash your hands frequently: before you eat and when they’re dirty
• Do NOT cough into your hands
• Do NOT sneeze into your hands
• Do NOT touch your nose, eyes, or mouth with your hands – instead, use a clean tissue when touching these areas of your face
