What to do When Sickness is Around?

There seems to be a lot of sickness lately, here are some tips to help lower the risk of getting sick!

1. Remember to always wash your hands in hot water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer before eating. Bacteria may be on your hands and can be transferred to anything that is touched. You should also avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as you can.  2. Try to sleep more, it allows your body to relax and recover from the day. 3. Make sure to stay hydrated, it can help wash away germs. If you do get sick, try not to pass it along. 4. If you have a fever, cough, or sore throat try wearing a mask if no mask is available, when needing to couch or sneeze, one should use a tissue or the inside of their elbow, this prevents others from getting sick.  5.  After your sickness is gone you should replace your toothbrush, there still may be bacteria on it.
