Handwashing-Prevent Colds & Flu

Lorain County General Health District Health Commissioner David Covell, RS MPH, reminds residents that we are in the midst of flu season and the best way to stay healthy is handwashing. Handwashing is key in preventing many diseases including cold and flu. Germs are everywhere you go, so remember to wash your hands….

 

• Before, during, and after you prepare food
• Before you eat
• After you use the restroom
• Frequently!

 

Already sick? Cover your cough and wash your hands regularly to protect friends and family. For more information on healthy habits visit www.LorainCountyHealth.com, “like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @LorainCoHealth, or give us a call at 440-322-6367.
