How to Avoid H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu)

If you're getting confused or don't know what to do to avoid getting the H1Ni flu virus, just read this easy to understand article by ComfortDoc: How to Prevent Getting H1N1 Flu or Swine Flu.

It's got all the information you need: the four basic steps to prevent infection, the science behind the disease, and lots of other resources (good resources) with up to date information.

ComfortDoc is a real MD, and she's also a terrific writer at Squidoo.

Remember what Mom taught you:
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing (try to do it away from others)
  • Wash your hands every time you sneeze or cough, or after you've been out in public
  • Keep your hands away from your mouth, eyes and nose
  • Stay away from sick folks, and if you get sick STAY HOME
If you can't wash up right away, carry and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer spray, gel, or wipes.

Don't shake hands or touch other people's computer keyboards, phones or personal items.
