Here are simple things you can do to avoid catching or spreading any flu virus:
WASH YOUR HANDS
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
AVOID CLOSE CONTACT
Limit contact with individuals who are sick, and if you are sick, isolate yourself from others as much as possible.
Drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest and take a fever reducer like acetaminophen or an NSAID. If your symptoms are severe, or you are at risk for flu complications, you should seek medical attention promptly.
Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your elbow, never into your hands. Toss tissues in the trash after one use.
Stay home or in your dorm room unless absolutely necessary. How long should you hibernate? The CDC recommends that you stay isolated for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other things you have to do and no one else can do for you. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, such as Tylenol.) You should stay home from work, school, travel, shopping, social events, and public gatherings.
