LHJ's Guide to Swine Flu
How to Stay Healthy
- Wash your hands. According to the CDC, up to 80 percent of all infections can be transmitted by hands. Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 15 to 20 seconds. If you're on the road, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and rub until the gel is dry.
- Get plenty of sleep.
- Stay active.
- Drink fluids and eat healthily. By the way, you can't get swine flu from eating pork.
- Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
