How to Steer Clear of Influenza This Season

Flu season has arrived, and prevention is the best policy when it comes to this common illness. Aside from the flu shot, cleanliness is the best tool for preventing the spread of the flu.

This video from the Sepsis Coordinator at West Hills Hospital covers some easy tips for fighting back against flu germs so you can stay well this season. You should always sneeze or cough into your elbow rather than your hands. Throughout the day, wash your hands with warm water and antibacterial soap, making sure to scrub for at least 20 seconds.
