- Stay home when sick and do not send sick children to school.
- Teach children to wash their hands frequently with soap and water when available.
- Teach children to cover their coughs and sneezes with tissues and throw them into the trash, or cough into their elbows.
- Teach children to stay away from others who are sick.
