The winter months bring many illnesses that can make you and your child feel downright awful. Here are some tips to get you through these challenges:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home from work or school, you will he prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Hydrate! It takes a lot of water(8-10 glasses/day) to keep your body running smoothly 
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. If you are sick this should be done daily.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Consult with/call your primary health care providers for persistent or concerning symptoms.
