Stopping germ transmission The only way to avoid infection is to stop the development of respiratory diseases. Nonetheless, the CDC recommends daily preventive steps to help reduce disease transmission when exposure can not be prevented. The CDC suggests the following steps: avoid direct contact with sick people. Do not cross your eyes, mouth or nose.
If you're tired, go home instead. Cover with a tissue over the cough or sneeze, then break the tissue into the garbage. The contaminated objects and surfaces are often washed and desinfected. Use the standard spray or wipes for the household cleaning.
Always wash your hands with the soap and water. Wash particularly after going to the bathroom for a minimum of 20 seconds; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Wet clean, flowing water (warm or cold) on your hands, turn off the tap and apply a rinse. Brush, and wash your face. Make sure that the back of your hands is lathered between your fingertips and under your fingers. Wash your mouth for 20 seconds, at least. Want to get a Time Clock? Sing the "Happy Birthday" song twice, from start to finish. Rinse well under clean, clear water. Put a clean towel over your palms, or air-dry them.
