Get the Better of the Flu

No one wants to be laid out on the couch or in bed with the flu.  However, with widespread influenza being reported in just about every state, including Vermont, beating the flu is getting to be more of a challenge.

Follow this link for an article on Tips to Avoid the Flu.

A couple of quick things you will want to remember are:

1.  Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, and throw the tissue away after use – don’t store it in your pocket and find it next winter. And remember: you have an elbow to sneeze or cough into if tissues aren’t available.

2.  Kill germs – wash your hands. No soap and water? Grab some hand sanitizer and go to town.

3.  Don’t touch your eyes.

4.  It’s tough, but try to avoid sick people.  

5.  Sick? Stay home and prevent others from getting sick. Your co-workers will high-five you upon your healthy return.
