Stop the Spread of Flu 

There are a number of ways to help protect yourself and your loved ones from getting ill with the flu.

  • Get a flu shot.

  • Good hand hygiene is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of the flu virus. Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly and often, especially before eating or after using the washroom.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw the tissue in the garbage immediately. Wash your hands afterwards.

  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve.

  • Stay home if you are ill.

  • Keep common surfaces (counter tops, door knobs and computer keyboards) clean and disinfected.
