Here’s how to avoid the flu this flu season—and make the season safer for others as well.
Scrub, Scrub, Scrub
The simple act of washing your hands with soap and water, and washing them frequently, goes a long way in avoiding flu germs.
It’s best to make a conscious effort to keep your hands away from your face.
Rules for School
Teach your kids about the importance of washing their hands, and the right way to do it.
Go to Bed
Getting enough sleep is a big part of keeping your immune system healthy.
Work It Out

If you don’t have time to grab a tissue, bend your arm and let it fly into your upper sleeve or elbow—not in your hands.
