Prevention

There are several things you can do to keep yourself healthy during this time of year when things like influenza or other viruses or bacterial infections are around.    
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. 
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. 
  • 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.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. 
  • Get a flu shot or see your health provider for consultation. 
  • Counseling & Health Services is in Allie Young Hall 112 and is open, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. The phone number is 606-783-2055.
