    If someone in your home has the flu (and really all the time) its good idea to:

    - Wash hard surfaces (like counter-tops) frequently you dont need to use special or anti-bacterial soap

    - Wash laundry, utensils and dishes with detergent and water after use

    - Dont share personal items such as towels, cups, utensils, toothbrushes, etc.

  • Hand Washing Song ! ! !Twinkle, twinkle little star,

    Look how clean my two hands are,Soap and water, wash and scrubGet those germs off rub-a-dub.

    Twinkle, twinkle little star,Look how clean my two hands are!

    *Teach your children how to protect themselves and others from the flu how to wash their hands and cover their cough / sneeze.

    If children ask how long do I wash my hands Answer as long as it takes to sing twinkle, twinkle little star

    These are good basic infection control habits to learn early in life and, if they become habits, kids will always do them automatically.
