H1N1 Information

Want to practice flu prevention? Along with immunization, people are also encouraged to take the following precautions to prevent illness.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after a sneeze or cough.
  • When soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
  • Cough and sneeze into elbow or sleeve.
  • If using tissues, dispose of them appropriately and wash your hands.
  • Limit touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Do not share drinking glasses, water bottles, mouth guards, cosmetics or eating utensils.
  • If you're concerned that medical advice or care is needed, contact HealthLink 811.
  • Like any illness, should symptons worsen, visit a doctor or walk-in clinic.
