    Get your flu shot, even if your are one of those people who resist immunization because if you get it then you can spread it to the rest of us!!

    If you are around people who are sick be sure they stay HOME!
    Don’t shake hands
    People should cover their noses with a tissue if they sneeze. Simple
    Know who is at risk
    (I saw a 10 year old kissing her little sister on the mouth today, children should be taught to kiss their siblings on the cheek or forehead!!) No need to spread your germs.
    If you are SICK, Stay Home, Stay home, Stay Home!!
