Take good care during the cold and flu season
The cold and flu season is here. Here are some tips from The Public Health Agency of Sweden that can help you stay healthy.
- A general preventive measure against respiratory infection is to avoid touching your face and eyes and to avoid close contact with sick people.
- Wash hands often with soap and warm water, before eating, before preparing food, and after toilet use. Alcohol-based hand rub can be an alternative when you are unable to wash hands.
- Cough and sneeze into the bend of your elbow or into a tissue to prevent infection from spreading around you, or from contaminating your hands.
- Stay at home when you are sick to avoid infecting people on the bus, at work or in areas where you are close to other people.
