Health Practices

Basic Prevention of Virus Spread

 
  1. Make sure all family members are up-to-date with their flu shots.
  2. Promote basic hygiene:
    • Any coughing or sneezing should be directed into ones sleeve (inside elbow), rather than into hands or the air. 
    • Wash hands after using and handling used tissues, after blowing nose, before/after eating, and after toilet use.
    • Wash for 20 seconds with soap, rub between fingers and under nails; and then rinse and dry. (May use alcohol (60%+) hand gel if sinks are not readily available.)
    • Schools should encourage hand washing (by students and staff) through education, scheduled time for handwashing, and the provision of adequate supplies
    • Avoid rubbing your own eyes, nose and mouth.
    • Do not share utensils, cups etc.
    • Stay home when sick.
    • Avoid contact with those who are sick.
