Cold and Flu Prevention

During flu season, or any time of the year, you'll want to stock up on hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and sanitation supplies to help prevent the spread of germs. We have the products you need to keep your property clean and your staff healthy.

Prepare

Clean hands are healthier hands. The common cold and flu viruses can spread quickly from person to person. To help stop the spread of infectious diseases and control germs, have plenty of antibacterial soap, hand sanitizer, and tissues available for your staff, guests, and residents.

  • Encourage hand washing and good hygiene
  • Allow sick employees to stay home to avoid spreading illness
  • Stay up on news related to viruses and health

Respond

To minimize the risk of an infection spreading, keep high-traffic areas clean. That means routinely sanitizing frequently touched objects and surfaces, including door knobs, keyboards, and phones.

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Use hand sanitizers if hand soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth

Recover

Once an outbreak has passed, restock your supply of antibacterial hand soaps and hand sanitizers. Take time to disinfect commonly touched areas like door knobs, handrails, telephones, and countertops. Remember to use disposable gloves and disinfectants.
