  • Wash your hands with warm water and soap before eating and after using the washroom.
  • Cough into your sleeve or use a tissue.
  • Get immunized, and make sure your immunizations are up to date.
  • Stay home when you feel sick.
  • Don’t smoke indoors or near babies.

For more information on your immunization status, please see your health care provider at the local health centre, or public health.
