fluMy now grown children get annoyed with me when I remind them of practical ways to stay healthy during the cold and flu season. When I saw this article at the webmd site, I decided to post it and let my kids get their advice from webmd. It’s good to be reminded of good health habits.

Here are the CDC’s tips for reducing swine flu infection:

Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your arm — not your hands.

Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

Stay home if you are sick until at least 24 hours after you have been free of fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more, or signs of fever, without using fever-reducing medicines.
