Keep your hands clean.

Cover your cough and your sneeze.
Use a tissue or cover your mouth with your sleeve when you sneeze or cough. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
Avoid close contact.
Especially with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
Stay at home when you are sick.
If possible, stay home from work, school and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
Get vaccinated.
This is an important step toward fighting seasonal flu and H1N1. It helps protect you and others.
