Tia Mowry, television celebrity and new mom to one-year-old son Cree, knows how important it is to help keep her family healthier with cold and flu season around the corner. She helps Cree say “Boo!” to the flu by disinfecting frequently touched surfaces around their home, like doorknobs, light switches and faucets, so that her family can enjoy all the fun festivities fall has to offer.
In addition to disinfecting, below are some cold and flu prevention tips from SayBooToTheFlu.com to help keep families healthier this season:
- Get Vaccinated: Vaccination is the first step in flu prevention. However, even after getting vaccinated, you should also follow simple steps to help prevent the spread of the flu virus – and other potentially harmful bacteria and viruses – in the office and at home.
- Wash Hands Frequently: Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice).
- Do the Elbow Cough: Cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands to help prevent the spread of germs by touch.
- Follow Good Health Guidelines: Eat right, exercise and get plenty of sleep to help boost your body’s ability to fight the effects of colds and flu.
