Increase your odds of staying healthy: wash your hands, stop touching your face

As flu season continues and the world struggles to contain the  COVID-19 virus, there are some simple things you can do to protect your health and the health of those around you.

Wash your hands often with  an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water

Washing your hands kills viruses that may be on your hands. It’s always a good idea to wash your hands.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth

Every time you touch a surface you contaminate your hands. Don’t give germs and viruses an easy passage into your body by touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. 

Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
When you cough or sneeze, tuck your nose and mouth into a flexed elbow or use a tissue. Immediately throw all tissues away and wash your hands.

The bottom line? Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands
