  1. CLEAN – Wash your hands often. Scrub your hands for at least 30 seconds with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
  2. COVER – Cover your cough. Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.

Don’t have a tissue? The crook of your elbow will do.

  1. CONTAIN – Contain germs by steering clear of others who are sick. If you do get sick, stay home until you are well again, so you do not spread more germs.
  2. CALL – Call or see your doctor if you or your child has a fever greater than 100 degrees.
