Citizens can take proactive steps to protect themselves, including:

  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid others who appear sick.
  • Keep your hands away from your eyes and nose. This is a common transmission mode for flu.
