More tips to help us get through cold and flu season:
1. Keep yourself healthier by eating well, exercising, and getting plenty of rest.
2. When you are sick, avoid public areas and crowds. If at all possible, stay home until you are no longer contagious.
3. Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. It’s best to use a tissue that you can discard — then wash your hands.
4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
