Prevent the spread of germs

Today's Assignment

Reduce or eliminate illness causing germs in your life

Clean your home regularly, especially places where germs could live. Prevent insects and animals from getting inside our homes.

Protect food from insects and animals by keeping it properly covered. Where possible, refrigerate perishable foods.

Wash foods carefully to remove as many germs as possible.

Properly dispose of human and animal wastes, since insects and rodents are attracted to them.

Wash your hands before eating, after using the toilet, after changing soiled diapers, and so on.

Brush your teeth after each meal.

Always cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing.

Wear shoes, sandals, or other foot coverings.

Eat properly and rest. Eating proper foods and getting enough rest can help us avoid or overcome illness. Germs are less able to infect a healthy body
