It's that time of year again. We can all relate to the awful stuffiness, nausea, light-headedness, and the general "blah" feeling of being sick.

 

Here are some great tips from WebMD on how you can prevent sickness in the workplace:

 

1. Call in sick whenever you can. Because the cold and flu can be spread so easily within the workplace, it is a good idea to monitor your symptoms.  If you notice any of the following symptoms it is advised to stay home and get rest:

  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Sore Throat
  • Cough
  • Muscle Aches
  • Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea

2. If you feel the urge to cough or sneeze - cover your mouth! Try using your elbow to cover your mouth to help prevent the spread of germs from touching things with your hands.
 

3. Wash your hands! Washing your hands often can help kill bacteria and viruses. If soap and water are not available to you, try carrying around a small bottle of alcohol based hand sanitizer.

 

4. Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes with your hands. Germs spread easily from these areas.  If you must touch your mouth, nose or eyes make sure to wash or disinfect your hands after.
 

5. Use disinfectant wipes (ex. Lysol) to wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard, etc. Disinfecting these areas will help minimize the spread of germs.
