Preventing the Flu at home

Just because one person in a household gets the flu doesn’t mean everyone has to.

To prevent the spread of influenza virus it is important to keep surfaces (especially bedside tables, doorknobs, light switches, phones, computer keyboards, remotes, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant according to directions on the product label.

Linens (such as bed sheets and towels) should be washed by using household laundry soap and tumbled dry on a hot setting. Individuals should avoid “hugging” laundry prior to washing it to prevent contaminating themselves. Individuals should wash their hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub immediately after handling dirty laundry.

Eating utensils should be washed either in a dishwasher or by hand with very hot water and soap.
