The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to hospitalization or death.

Important flu prevention tips:

  • Get a flu vaccine and avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you’e sick, limit personal contact to keep from infecting others. Stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever ends.
  • 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. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean shared spaces more often — desks, office equipment such as keyboards and phone receivers.
  • If you get the flu, antiviral drugs can be used to treat your illness. They are different from antibiotics. They are prescription medicines and are not available over the counter.
