What can the public do to reduce their risk of getting the flu?
One of the most proven ways to fight seasonal influenza is to get an injection or nasal spray of the seasonal flu vaccine.

The Department of Health recommends following these simple prevention tips:

• Sneeze or cough into a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands);
• Wash your hands with soap often or use an alcohol‐based sanitizer;
• Keep your hands away from your face – don’t touch your mouth, nose or eyes;
• Keep frequently used surfaces clean (like knobs, countertops and desks);
• Stay healthy – eat nutritious foods, don’t smoke, exercise regularly and get enough sleep; 
• Stay home from work, school, and social gatherings (like concerts, parties, etc.) if you have flu‐like and feverish symptoms to help prevent others from catching your illness.
