Prevention

Prevention remains the simplest and strongest measure to combat the spread of the influenza virus. Public health officials stress the importance of:

  • Vaccination
  • Hand washing (video)
  • Cough etiquette
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
  • Self-isolation – in dorm room or home – when ill for at least 24 hours after one’s fever is gone (except to seek medical care)
