Wash Your Hands Often

 
  During flu season, opportunities for illness are everywhere. In fact, people infected with the flu can spread the virus starting one day before they feel any symptoms. Wash your hands frequently to prevent spreading or contracting germs. If you don't have access to soap and water, use hand sanitizer and wipe down shared surfaces with disinfecting wipes.
