Stay Healthy This School Year ⊕

Practicing good hand hygiene. Students and staff members should wash their hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing.

  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice) is the best way to keep your hands from spreading the virus.
  • Alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60% alcohol are also useful.
  • If soap and water are not available and alcohol-based products are not allowed in the school, other hand products that do not contain alcohol may be useful for cleaning hands. However, they may not be as useful as alcohol-based rubs.

Practicing respiratory etiquette. The main way colds and flu spread is from person to person in the droplets produced by coughs and sneezes, so it’s important to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not into your hands.

Staying home if you’re sick. Keeping sick students at home means that they keep their viruses to themselves rather than sharing them with others.
