College Nurse tips for preventing colds and flus


The College Nurses would like to remind you about some good preventive tactics:

  • Keep your hands clean
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing
  • Use in the nearest waste container to dispose of the tissue after use
  • Perform hand hygiene after having contact with respiratory secretions and contaminated objects/materials
  • Clean your surroundings regularly (counters and other surfaces that you touch often with your hands)
  • Get an annual flu shot and a COVID booster

If you catch a bug, avoid contact with people: stay home and do a rapid COVID test. Remaining cautious will help us live with the Covid virus, but with quite a few others too!
