CDC has produced an infographic to help remind children how to prevent the spread of cold and flu, particularly Enterovirus D68, a respiratory illness spreading across the Midwest. Although designed for kids, everyone can help prevent the spread of disease by following these six simple rules.

  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • Wash your hands often
  • Cover Your coughs and sneezes
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces
  • Stay home when you’re sick
