It is important to note that ordinary seasonal flu, which has symptoms similar to H1N1 Influenza, is still active in New York State. Precautionary measures can be taken to help limit your risk of contracting both seasonal and swine flu.

 

Help limit the risk of spreading or contracting influenza

 

Precautionary measures can be taken to help limit your risk of spreading or contracting both seasonal and H1N1 Influenza:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water. Alcohol-based hand cleansers are also effective

  • Avoid people who are ill

  • Stay home from work or school if you are sick

  • Use a tissue when you cough, sneeze or spit, and dispose of the tissue in a covered trash bin

  • Keep hands away from your face. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth

  • Clean shared spaces more often (phone receivers, keyboards, steering wheels, office equipment)

  • Refrain from sharing personal items such as forks, spoons, toothbrushes and towels
