CDC offers tips for preventing swine flu

April 27, 2009

Two cases of swine influenza have been reported in Kansas. To protect yourself and others, the Centers for Disease Control suggests the following:

• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.

• Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

• If you get sick, try to stay home from work or school and limit contact with other people as much as possible.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread easily that way.
