Model, teach and reinforce healthy habits. Use a variety of strategies including reading books and singing songs to teach your family about healthy practices.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% ethyl alcohol or at least 70% isopropyl alcohol (a neurotoxin and eye irritant).
Avoid contact with people who are sick.
