Essential Information

The symptoms of H1N1 flu are similar to those of the regular human flu—fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Everyday prevention techniques are critically important. They include covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze; throwing the tissue in the trash after you use it; washing your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze; avoiding close contact with sick people; not touching your eyes, nose or mouth so that you don’t spread germs; staying home from work or school except to seek medical care.
