With all the talk about the new strain of flu virus, some forget there is some things you can do to prevent the spread of the flu.
Stay home when you are sick
Avoiding close contact with other people will help prevent them from catching your illness.
Clean your hands
Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
Cover your mouth and nose
Use a tissue when coughing or sneezing — it may prevent the spread of the virus.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
Practice other good health habits
Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food.
Keep Your Air Clean with Trane Clean Effects – Indoor Air Filtration
Because of the similarities among types of influenza viruses, Harvard and EH&E researchers concluded that Trane CleanEffects will remove more than 99 percent of other forms of the virus, including influenza B, influenza C and avian influenza (also a strain of influenza A virus) from the filtered air.
The tests involved releasing the common flu virus into the air inside a test heating, ventilation and air conditioning duct. The removal efficiency was calculated from the amount of the common flu virus measured in air samples collected before and after passing through the Trane CleanEffects system.
