To Help Prevent Respiratory Illnesses, such as the Flu and COVID-19
During flu season, stop the spread of germs that make you and your family sick. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve. This may help prevent others from getting the flu or other illnesses. Healthy habits start with you!
