As fall exits and the winter season approaches, yep you guessed it the cold and flu season is upon us as well. A few good practices can prevent the spread of germs and help keep your facility clean and healthy for your customers and co-workers!
Here are some tips that can help with cold and flu prevention:
- ✓ Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze or cough. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
- ✓ Wash your hands often with soap and water, many illnesses are transmitted by the hands.
- ✓ Frequently disinfect high touch surfaces such as door handles, handrails, countertops and fixtures.
- ✓ And maybe one of the most important tips…do not come into work when you are sick to avoid exposing others!
