• When sneezing or coughing, remember to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue, not your hands. A tissue will collect the germs and keep everyone out of harm’s way. Be sure to throw it away immediately.
Other suggestions include: frequently washing shared items, such as phones or keyboards, staying away from crowds during the cold and flu season and using antibacterial hand gel.
