Keep your family healthy during cold and flu season


Here’s some advice from Elmo on how to stay healthy during cold and flu season. Some other tips include:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water–wash for about 20 seconds (or two rounds of “Happy Birthday”)
  • Clean the most-often touched items in your house–doorknobs, keyboards, phones and remote controls.
  • Make sure your child’s school, child care program, or college routinely cleans frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Try to avoid contact with people who are sick.
