How to over come H1N1 flue?

What is it ?

Swine flu (H1N1v) is a flu virus that usually infects pigs, but can also infect humans and result from human-to-human contact.

How does it spread?

Human to human spread of H1N1 is usually through coughing and sneezing from recently exposed or ill individuals. The flu virus may also survive on surfaces such as doorknobs, phones and railings for a few hours, so you can spread the flu by touching these surfaces and then touching your eyes, mouth or nose.

How to prevent the spread of H1N1 and the flu?

Don't come to work if you are sick – especially if you have a fever. It's fine to work from home if you feel well enough--otherwise, rest and get better. Let your manager know if you need to stay home, and be sure to consult your doctor if you have flu-like symptoms (including fever, lethargy, lack of appetite, coughing, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea).

Get a flu shot. Talk to your doctor about getting a flu shot, which includes the H1N1 virus strain and follow their recommendations. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that people should get the flu vaccine each year. Your doctor’s office should have the flu vaccine or be able to direct you on how to get a flu vaccine.

Clean your hands often! One of the most common ways to spread an infectious virus is through a simple handshake. Wash your hands with soap and warm water, scrubbing all surfaces. When soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand wipes or gel sanitizers. Rub the gel in your hands until they are dry.

Cover your mouth with your elbow when coughing or sneezing. Check out Elmo & Rosita's "The Right Way to Sneeze" video for a demonstration!

Don't bring sick visitors to the office. Please reschedule any onsite meetings or lunches if your guests are ill or not feeling well.

What precautions are we taking to avoid the spread of the flu in the offices?

We've been sanitizing office common areas and common touch points like door handles, lift buttons, phones, desks, etc.

We've also made hand sanitizer readily available in cafes, micro kitchens, conference rooms and car shuttles.

Janitorial staff and car shuttle drivers have also been instructed to use hand wipes regularly.
