Preventing the Spread of Flu
- Children and adults with a fever (100°F) should stay home, especially if the fever came on suddenly and coincided with body aches, sore throat and a cough, the classic flu symptoms. Don’t return to public places, such as work or school, until you have been without a fever for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication.
- Wash hands frequently and thoroughly.
- Cover your mouth when coughing.
- Get the flu vaccine.
