Since the holidays are a time when lots of people (and their germs) mingle, there are some common sense guidelines you can follow to keep from getting sick:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
- Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
- Keep your hands away from your eyes, mouth, and nose.
- Steer clear of anyone who is sick.
- Urge your loved ones and friends to stay home if they come down with the flu.
