No Germs

What We Can Do To Combat H1N1 Flu

Stop the Spread of Germs 

Avoid close contact
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
Stay home when you are sick
Stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
Cover your mouth and nose
Sneeze/cough into your sleeve or cover your mouth/nose with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a trash bin. This prevents those around you from getting sick.
Clean your hands
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.  Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective if water is not available.
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.  
Practice other good
health habits

Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.  Allow fresh air to flow into your home or at work by opening screened windows and doors.


ThermometerDon't forget . . .
If you have a fever of 100° F or higher and cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, stay home and call your primary care physician or go to Santa Clara Valley Medical Express Clinic for evaluation.
