No one wants to catch contagious diseases like colds, flu, pneumonia, or strep throat. Luckily, there are ways to prevent catching these and other flu like disease.
Wash you hands:
Wash your hands with warm soapy water or alcohol-based hand cleaner before eating and after contact with others who are sick, handling trash, and after using the bathroom.
Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing:
Most flu like disease can be spread via the mist from sneezing and expelled through coughing. Always cover your nose and mouth with tissues. Of course, discard tissues after use and keep clean ones on hand.
Avoid close contact with others who are sick:
Be aware of others around you who are sick, especially if they are not covering their noses or mouths. Also, if you are sick, avoid spreading your germs to others who are not sick.
