Steps you can take to prevent the spread of germs and protect yourself from becoming ill include:

•    Continue to wash your hands frequently,
•    Stay away from sick people, and if you are sick, stay home!
•    Cover your cough and sneezes to prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses, such as flu.
•    Get enough rest, and find ways to decrease the stress in your life (meditation, exercise, etc.)
•    If you do think you have the flu, you can receive anti-viral drugs (What you should know about antivirals) to decrease the severity of the symptoms. The medication works best if you get medication prescribed by a provider within 48 hours of first becoming ill.
