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!
