Avoiding the flu is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Get a flu shot.
- 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.
- 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.
