Johnson County Community College invited emergency preparedness personnel from Johnson County Public Health Department and Johnson County Emergency Management & Homeland Security to a staff/employee in-service yesterday to discuss planning related to the H1N1 pandemic flu strain.
Staff has lots of good questions about what to expect and how to prepare for this upcoming flu season. They were reminded that there are three easy steps to always reduce the spread of viruses and germs. They are:
1) Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water
2) Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
3) Cough or sneeze into your elbow or tissue and properly dispose of the used tissue
Let's all be prepared together to reduce the spread in Johnson County!
