CDC unveils healthy travel campaign
In response to concerns about the spread of the H1N1 influenza, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week launched a public awareness campaign on healthy traveling.
Being in close proximity to others – whether family members or fellow passengers on planes, trains or buses – can cause germs to spread quickly. To stay healthy on the road, CDC recommends:
- Travel only when you are feeling well.
- Get vaccinated for both the seasonal influenza and H1N1 if you are in a high-risk group.
- Wash hands often.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
