Take everyday preventive actions that are recommended to reduce the spread of flu.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

If you are sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.

Cover coughs and sneezes.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.

Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with viruses that cause flu.

IV Vitamin C, Zinc, Magnesium, Lysine and B-complex can be helpful for preventative to boost you immune system.

For flu, CDC recommends that people stay home for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone except to get medical care or other necessities. Fever should be gone without the need to use a fever-reducing medicine. Note that the stay-at-home guidance for COVID-19 may be different.
