Stop the spread of germs!

To reduce the spread of germs including the flu and the novel coronavirus we recommend that you:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth unless you have just washed your hands
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your arm, not your hand
  • If you are ill and must visit a healthcare provider, call ahead or tell them right away when you arrive that you have a respiratory illness and wear a mask while waiting to be seen
  • Avoid visiting people in hospitals or long-term care centres if you are sick
  • Get your flu shot
