What to do if you're sick:

Stay home.

 

If you have a fever, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicines, such as acetaminophen.

 

Keep sick household members away from others. If you have a separate room that is best.

Use soap and water, a bleach and water solution, or EPA-approved household products. You can make your own cleanser with a mixture of 1 cup of liquid unscented chlorine bleach in 5 gallons of water.

 

Avoid sharing personal items.

Anyone at high risk for complications should talk to their healthcare provider for more information.
