The Center for Disease Control has announced that more cases of flu are being reported than normal documented amounts in several states. US officials say that such upticks usually don't occur until after Christmas.
Please, cover your mouth when you cough, sneeze into your shoulder. If you have to sneeze again, then sneeze into your opposite shoulder. If you’re one of those people who always sneezes three times in a row, you should have had time to take out a handkerchief and cover your nose and mouth.
If someone you meet exhibits flu-like symptoms, try to refrain from shaking their hand and avoid close contact with anyone who appears to be developing a cold. Use toilet paper, or towels to turn on faucets, or open public doors and wash your hands often.
