Tips to Stay Healthy During the Season of Acute Respiratory Illnesses

Stay Healthy During the Season of Acute Respiratory Illnesses

It’s important to stay healthy during the season of acute respiratory illnesses. Here are some tips and best practices to follow:

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands in general.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Don’t forget to clean and disinfect surfaces frequently touched daily.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Put distance between yourself and other people. And if you happen to become sick, stay home except to get medical care.
