Finally, a few ideas you can use and share in the workplace to help stop the spread of flu germs:
-If you know you’re sick with the flu, stay home.
-Get a flu shot, which not only protects you but helps prevent contagion.
-Within a day of becoming ill, ask your doctor about antiviral medications, which can shorten the episode and contain the virus.
-Be especially cautious between late December and early March, the peak of flu season.
-Sneeze or cough into your elbow, not into your hands.
-Clean phones, doorknobs and desktops with alcohol swabs.
-Throw used tissues away!
-Wash your hands and face often with hot, soapy water.
-During flu season, never let anyone lick your keyboard.
