How Common Infectious Diseases Are Transmitted.
Indirect contact: Touching a tabletop, doorknob, or faucet handle then touch your eyes, mouth or nose before washing your hands.
Insect bites: Mosquitoes, fleas, lice or ticks
Food and water contamination: Diseases transmitted by contaminated water and uncooked food
Prevent The Spread of Illness
Stay home: When you are sick stay home.
Wash hands often: Wash hands for at least 20 seconds, or hum the "Happy Birthday" song twice from beginning to end. Use alcohol based hand sanitizer if washing is not possible
Cover mouth and nose: use a tissue when coughing or sneezing, or couch into your bent arm at the inner elbow.
Stay up to date on your immunizations: Talk to your health care provider to make sure you are up to date on all of the vaccines you are required to take.
