    Tips for Preventing the Spread of Flu
     
     
     1. Keep your child home from school or daycare when he or she is sick.
     
     2. Allow your child to return to school only when fever-free for at least 24 hours (no   
         longer having a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines).
     
    3. Cover your cough. Cough into your upper sleeve or into a tissue and discard
         properly.
     
    4. Properly dispose of used tissues and other soiled items, and wash your hands
         after doing so.
      
    5. Wash hands frequently and regularly, or use hand sanitizers when water is not
         readily available.
     
    6. Regularly clean and disinfect areas and items likely to have frequent hand
        contact.
     
     7. Contact your healthcare provider when your child or other family member is
         sick with the flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose,   
         headache and body aches).
     
     8. If you are not able to stay home with your child, plan ahead for how he or she will
         be taken care of when sick at home or if school is closed.

     9. Stay informed through www.state.nj.us/health/, www.cdc.gov, or www.flu.gov.
