How to prevent the spread of the flu?

Thomson High School is continuing to disinfect all surfaces each day to prevent the spread of the flu. The CDC also recommends following these everyday preventive actions.
What are everyday preventive actions?
• Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
• If you or your child gets sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends
that you (or your child) stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever
is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. The fever
should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
• While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep
from infecting them.
• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are
not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
• Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be
contaminated with germs like the flu.
• If an outbreak of flu or another illness occurs, follow public
health advice. This may include information about how to
increase distance between people and other measures.
