How do I protect myself against the H1N1 flu?
Health experts recommend you take simple but effective actions to help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza:
- Keep your hands washed.
- Cover your mouth when you cough.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth to prevent germs from spreading.
