Flu. Prevent flu from spreading in your home

If the flu is going around your house it is important that you take a few steps to prevent it spreading.

  • If it is practical try to keep the people who have the flu away from those who do not.

  • Encourage everyone in the home to wash their hands often.

  • Launder hankies often and immediately dispose of tissues.

  • Aim for a healthy lifestyle a balanced diet, rich in fruit and vegetables, and regular (preferably daily) physical activity.

  • Do not smoke - smokers are more likely to catch a cold or the flu.

  • Boil your toothbrushes. Boil some water, add a cup of vinegar and boil your toothbrushes for about a minute - not too long or they will melt! This kills germs before you get the flu the second time around!
