Prevent this sickness from finding you!

What is FBI?

FBI stands for Food Borne Illness (in this case, it's that, not FBI as in police). You should never want to get FBI, as some common symptoms are vomiting and diarrhea.

About It And How To Outsmart It

The Sickness

The FBI that you should look out for is Norovirus, or better known as The Stomach Flu. The Stomach flu can cause nausea, dizziness when standing up, vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased urination. It can be found in foods or liquids contaminated with it. It can kill you if you already have a long-term health problem of weak immune system. But as long as you follow the steps below, you can prevent and avoid Norovirus.

How To Prevent It

Here are a few ways to prevent The Stomach Flu.

1. Wash your hands for 20 seconds or sing the ABC's in your head twice (it would be embarrassing for someone to walk by and hear you singing a preschool song right?).

2. Make sure after you cough or sneeze to wash or sanitize your hands ASAP.

3. If someone sneezes or (in worst case scenario,) vomits on you, make sure to clean it off with soap and warm water.

4. Before you eat a delicious Honeycrisp apple or a salad, you should always wash your fruits and veggies before eating them.

5.If someone sneezes on a surface, (like your computer keyboard) you should disinfect it before you use it again.

6. Wash your laundry thoroughly because all sorts of germs can pitch a tent in your breast pocket of your shirt, your pants pockets, and even in your underwear! Ewww!
