Tips To Avoid Catching The Flu

The single best way to prevent influenza is to get vaccinated each year, but healthy habits and other measures can also help. Download the NYC Department of Health’s flyer to learn how you can protect your family. 

1. Avoid Close Contact

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance (at least 3 feet) from others to protect them from getting sick, too

2. Stay Home When You Are Sick

Stay home from work or school when you are
sick and do not return until you have been free
of fever for 24 hours. This will help to prevent
others from catching your illness.

3. Cover Your Mouth And Nose

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Throw the used tissues away in a trash can.

4. Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
