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.
  • Stay home from work if you're sick and keep your children home from school if they're sick to keep from infecting others.
