SUPPLIES & EQUIPMENT NEEDED:
1Introduction to Flu Protection -
The #1 prevention measure that the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention) recommends is to get a flu vaccine for the upcoming flu season. This season is expected to be even worse than past flu seasons due to the onset of the H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as the Swine Flu. Besides getting a flu vaccine, there are many everyday precautionary measures that we all take in our day to day lives to minimize the risk of spreading the flu. The products listed below are what we recommend to help prevent the spread of these dangerous viruses.First rule to preventing the spread of germs: Sneeze into a tissue or your elbow!
2Hand Sanitizing -
It is a good idea to keep a hand sanitizing solution near you at all times. This pump version is perfect for use in restrooms, at your home, or in the workplace. We also have convenient sanitizing wipes available, which are perfect for keeping in your vehicle, to be used as needed. Hand sanitizers will prevent the most harmful bacteria and viruses from spreading, as long as it has at least a 60% alcohol concentration.
3Hand Washing -
Thoroughly scrub your hands with a hand soap several times a day. This includes after using the bathroom, coming in contact with other people, and before and after eating. This will help to prevent the spread of the virus from person to person.
4Disinfecting Common Use Areas -
Disinfect areas that get used frequently by multiple people. Use a disinfectant spray, like our Clorox MRSA Disinfectant for Health Care, or a wipe, like our Clorox Germicidal Disinfecting Wipes, to clean these areas frequently. This will help to prevent the spread of viruses and other bacteria. This would include computer keyboards, desks, telephones, countertops, and door handles.
5Using Tissues -
When you are about to sneeze or cough, use a tissue to help keep the environment free of germs. Throw it into a trash container after this. Stay away from touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your bare hands, germs are spread this way. Every precaution that can be put in place to keep an environment germ free, helps to keep everyone in the environment healthy.
6Breathing Protection -
If you are part of a large work force, and are in close contact with people who may have come in contact with a virus, you may want to incorporate a face mask, like something similar to the blue medical cone face mask, in to your prevention measures. This would especially apply to those people who work in care facilities, such as hospitals or retirement homes.
7Hand Protection -
Gloves are another part of the prevention process that may not be necessary for everyone, but it does apply to those in the medical care industry. We have nitrile, vinyl, and latex gloves available, depending on your specific needs. We would definitely recommend getting the "Exam Grade" quality gloves, because these will be of the highest quality and will not allow any germs to pass through the glove material.
All of these steps will help prevent the spreading of viruses and flu like symptoms, but you'll have to decide which steps are the most important to you. Take care and be cautious of what you touch and especially who you come in contact with if you are not feeling well. Sometimes the best choice is to stay home and let yourself rest, instead of spreading the virus or flu.
