Test Your Flu IQ

The CDC is projecting a severe flu season and it is now widespread in Maryland and Virginia. Experts recommend getting a flu shot (It's still not too late.) and following these six steps to stop the spread of germs.
  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  3. Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  4. Practice good health habits. Get plenty of sleep and exercise, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat healthy food.
  5. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  6. If you are sick with flu-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
I also recommend taking a few minutes to complete the Well Flu Quiz from the New York Times. You can learn the answers to these questions, "What surface is the most friendly to the flu virus? Where’s the best place to stand when you’re talking to a sick person? And how are Australians curbing germs in schools?" and more....
