Protect Yourself Against Respiratory Illness

Be a #HealthyDawg! Keep yourself and the UGA community healthy!

Follow these simple steps to help prevent the spread of respiratory illness:

  1. Get a flu shot. The best way to prevent the flu is to be immune to the viruses. If you haven’t gotten a flu shot yet, you should get one!
  2. Practice good hand hygiene by either washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or by using alcohol-based hand sanitizer which contains at least 60% alcohol.
  3. Do not touch your face, eyes, or mouth unless your hands are clean.
  4. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  5. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands!) when coughing or sneezing, and then throw the tissue in the trash. An uncovered cough or sneeze can project respiratory droplets 3 to 6 feet or more!

  7. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  8. Be open with your travel history or possible exposure to others.
