As flu season picks up and norovirus outbreaks typically occur, reminding yourself and those around you to follow basic infection control measures is especially important to keep everyone safe and healthy!
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds if available, otherwise use hand sanitizer
If you experience fever or diarrhea, stay home for 24 hours after you’re symptom-free without the use of medications (regardless of the initial onset date, incubation period, or typical duration of infection)
Cover your cough into your elbow, not your hands
Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces in your environment (light switches, knobs, railings, etc)
Following these steps ensure you and those around you stay healthy all year round!
