Prevention remains the simplest and strongest measure to combat the spread of the influenza virus. Public health officials stress the importance of:
- 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)
Faculty and staff may seek flu vaccines through Boston Public Health Commission Clinics or their own clinician.
