Just last year, H1N1, a virus virtually unheard of before, was designated the highest Pandemic Alert Level by the World Health Organization in response to its fast global spread and impact on millions of people and organizations worldwide.

While no one knows what strain of influenza, or other illness, may come our way this year, there are ways to help reduce its impact in your facilities.

Additionally, encourage your employees and patrons to practice the following prevention steps this flu season to help reduce the spread of germs that cause illness:

1.    Get a flu vaccination.

2.    Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough into your elbow.

3.    Wash your hands often with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

4.    Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

5.    Stay home if you get sick, and limit contact with others.

6.    Use disinfectants on surfaces, as directed, to help prevent the spread of the influenza virus.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and Clorox Hand Sanitizer are the ultimate (and easiest) germ-killing combination for people on-the-go, according to the company. Since flu prevention is top-of-mind for many travelers this year, many high-traffic airports and other mass transit systems are utilizing such products in their facilities to help provide a healthier environment for their staff and patrons.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes should be used on frequently-touched and shared hard surfaces, such as handrails, tabletops, door handles and airplane tray tables. Clorox Hand Sanitizer is a spray that provides a quick, non-messy solution for people on-the-go.
