Cold & Flu Season Focus promo

‘Tis the Season…

Cold & Flu Season is here…

Here are some great tips to follow to prevent the spread of illness:

  • Washing your hands is the single most important step in preventing the spread of diseases. It is extremely important to wash your hands often. We all use our hands much more frequently than we realize and they come into contact with millions of germs a day.
  • Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to help protect them from getting sick too.
  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will prevent others from catching your illness. Please reach out to your instructors letting them know that you are staying home from school because you are contagious. Please email them from your LFCC-issued email address. Also, please reach out to your dean of students if are having difficulty reaching your faculty member or have another issue you need help with. The Fauquier Campus dean of students is Dr. Tanya Ingram at tingram@lfcc.edu and the Middletown Campus dean of students is Dr. Karen Bucher at kbucher@lfcc.edu. If you are not able to miss class, please alert your professor that you are ill and that you will be limiting your class interaction.
  • Cover your cough. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. Wash your hands for at least 30 seconds to effectively kill germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect your “shared spaces” more often than other times of the year. Remember phones, keyboards, steering wheels, office equipment, and other items used by several people during the day.
  • Get enough sleep. During sleep, your body’s immune system goes into high gear to protect you from illness. Lack of sleep can reduce immune functioning, making you susceptible to sickness.
  • Drink more water. In the fall and winter, it is easy to overlook your thirst and get dehydrated. Make sure you consume 8 glasses a day.
  • Listen to your body. If you are less than 100%, you will feel better and recover faster if you let yourself rest.
  • Finally, be sure to visit your doctor if you are running a fever
