I came down with the flu on Sunday and have canceled all of my appointments this week. I really do not want to infect anyone.
Here is a list of everyday precautions to protect others while sick with the flu.
- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
