SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS: Fever Cough Sore throat Body aches Chills & fatigue Diarrhea & vomiting
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based cleaners are also effective. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way. Try to avoid close contact with sick people. If you get sick with influenza, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
