Health Tip: Don't Spread Germs at Work

(HealthDay News) -- If you're sick or one of your co-workers isn't feeling well, it's best to avoid close contact for a while.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions to help prevent the spread of germs at the workplace:

  • Get a flu vaccine each year.
  • Avoid close contact with other people who are sick; if you're sick, limit your contact with others.
  • If you are sick, stay home until you are better.
  • When you sneeze or cough, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue.
  • Carefully and regularly wash your hands.
