Clorox offers H1N1 ed. kits for public transportation

Posted on January 21, 2010

Clorox is offering professionals a free Flu Preparedness & Prevention Educational Kit this flu season, which contains informational posters, brochures and checklists that teach important H1N1 and flu prevention protocols. The kits are available in several categories, including colleges and universities; office and workplace; and mass transit, airports and public places.

Seasonal flu activity typically peaks in January or later, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the flu virus can spread as late as May. On top of the rising seasonal flu activity, this season the 2009 H1N1 virus is also circulating.

With both the seasonal flu and the H1N1 virus spreading this season, it seems that more people are cognizant of flu prevention steps. However, as people return from holiday travels, they may be spreading germs to many surfaces outside of their homes, like those on the metro or in the office.

Organizations — and particularly mass transportation systems where many people pass through daily — need to be ready to combat and help prevent the further spread of both flu viruses this winter and spring, urges Clorox.
