Swine Flu Tips — Just in Case!

You can’t turn around the past few days without bumping into another story about the swine flu. While no cases have been reported in Michigan, it’s still a smart idea to be prepared and know what to look for. (Better safe than sorry — it’s a cliché for a reason!)

Here are some basic prevention tips to use:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective when soap and water aren’t available.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. Try to avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Influenza (flu) is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing.
  • If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
