Viruses and Bacteria – Spreading germs in the workplace
By the time cold or flu symptoms appear, an infected worker could have been spreading viruses or bacteria around the workplace for several days.  That’s why, in addition to staying home when you are sick, it’s also important to observe the same common sense precautions even if you are not symptomatic - or you are just not sick and want to keep it that way.
To avoid spreading or picking up germs in the workplace:
·       Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds; when water is not available, use alcohol-based cleaners.
·       Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
·       Cover your nose and mouth with tissue if you sneeze or cough; or sneeze into the crook of your elbow.
·        Follow public health notices.
·       Get seasonal flu shots when available.
The Office of Research Services, Division of Occupational Health and Safety, Occupational Medical Service offers a flu vaccine program for NIH employees.  For more information, call (301) 496-4411 or visit Web site.
