Health News

Taking certain precautions to stay healthy is always a good idea and easy too. Prevent the spread of germs that can cause illnesses like the common cold and flu by following these easy, common sense steps:

    Prevention:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • If you are sick, limit your contact with other people as much as possible. Do not go to work or school if ill.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are coughing or appear ill. Do not attend social gatherings such as sporting events and religious ceremonies.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Put your used tissue in the waste basket.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze if you do not have a tissue. Don’t cough or sneeze into your hand. Instead, cough or sneeze into your sleeve or elbow. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • If you get sick with flu, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. If you think you have influenza, see your health care provider or go to the emergency department at your nearest hospital.
