It’s flu season…how will you avoid it?

Avoiding the flu is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
  1. Get a flu shot. 
  2. Wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds. Sing “Happy Birthday” through twice to ensure that you have washed long enough. Then be sure to use a paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the door so you don’t dirty your freshly washed hands.
  3. Avoid people who are sick if you can. And if you can’t, minimize contact, get lots of rest, and drink lots of fluids to keep washing those nasty germs away.
